Biography

I joined Bell Labs as a Postdoctoral Researcher in February 2015, and since February 2016 I have been a Member of the Technical Staff (MTS) at Nokia Bell Labs. I develop novel inference techniques using deep learning and bringing new inference capabilities to mobile and wearable platforms. I am part of a dynamic team directed by Dr. Fahim Kawsar, which focusses on broader Internet of Things (IoT) research agenda. I work closely with Dr. Nicholas D. Lane. Prior to joining Bell Labs, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Aalto University, Finland. I received PhD and M.Sc. in Computer Science from University of Helsinki, Finland. I previously worked at Nokia Research Center, Helsinki.
