AES Member Type: Fellow

Born in Finland 1960. Graduated with MSc in Applied Physics and Acoustics from Helsinki University of Technology, 1991, but not quite managing to leave the academic world behind, first continuing as a research scientist until the end of 1994, and from that onwards continued teaching acoustics, nowadays giving a biannual course in electroacoustics. I joined Nokia Corporation at the end of 1994, and moved to Microsoft with the corporate merger in 2014, which I left due to a massive staff reduction at the end of 2015. After that I joined PuroNovo engineering company to develop active noise and vibration control for Kone Corporation's elevators, and Genelec as a researcher in loudspeaker signal processing. The latest career turn in May 2016 was to re-join Microsoft Mobile in a temporary position as a project manager in audio accessories.

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 these devices with apparently unlimited hidden complexity.

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. Awarded AES Fellowship in 2012.
