Currently holding a position of Principal Specialist in Audio Technology Management, with focus on new transducer applications and technologies.

Publications include 10 granted patents in mobile phone technology, 2 JAES papers, and over 50 conference publications, mostly at AES Conventions. Most of these publications are related to loudspeakers, motivated by a desire to understand a bit deeper the underlying principles of audio design.

Audio Engineering Society activities include, besides the publications, serving as the Vice Chairman for Technical Committee on Loudspeakers and Headphones, being a member (and past chairman) of the AES Finnish Section, chairing the 16th and 51st AES International Conferences and being in the committees of 22nd, and 45th International Conferences.
