Summary

Finishing studies in the University of Jyväskylä with just the Master's thesis yet to be done. With information system sciences as my major, I've strong interest in human computer interaction, usability evaluation and user experience, and how these can be used to maximize efficiency. I've also taken a couple of courses on philosophy as it is the mother of all sciences and requirement for academic thinking. My other fields of interest are travelling and aviation, contributing to my summer employments in the Helsinki-Vantaa Airport. I did my student exchange in the University of Cádiz, Spain, in 2015 which greatly improved my Spanish communication skills all the way to B2 level, let alone how it also made me even more international and more interested in our dear Europe. I could also mention writing as one of my strongest skills and I always want to make myself understood.

I am also interested in history, literature, football (soccer) and video games.

My Bachelor's thesis examined the utility of discount usability engineering. Now I'm writing my Master's thesis about user experience and technology acceptance in a multicultural project.
