I am an experienced software professor. I believe in a strong international presence is required in today’s networked society. I have spent more than 10 years of my professional life outside of Finland building networks and competences. Most recently I worked as a full professor of software engineering both at NTNU in Norway and at Free University of Bozen-Bolzano in Italy. Both places were superb for working and living!

I am very experienced in research project leadership and working productively with software companies. Empirical software engineering, software startups, software robots, Ethics in artificial intelligence define my current research interests. Besides great research and breakthrough startups, my passion is in teaching the next generation of software leaders.
