I am Professor of Signal Processing at Computing Sciences department at Tampere University where I am part of the Vision Group. I did my post-doc in Center of Vision, Speech and Signal Processing, University of Surrey, with Josef Kittler. After my post-doc I spent five years in the Faculty of the LUT School of Engineering Science, LUT University, after which I was selected to the current tenure-track position in 2012 (tenured 2017 and promoted to full professor 2020). Since 2020 I am also Academic Leader of the Huawei's Camera Team in Tampere.

NEW! A new course book about machine learning (in Finnish): Koneoppimisen perusteet (Otatieto, 2023).


My main research interests are computer vision, image processing and machine learning. I am broadly interested about computer vision problems and recently my attention has moved toward robot vision and machine learning for robotics. I am involved in many applied research projects where I collaborate with the local industry.
