Hannes Päivänsalo, Head of IT Operations
'My main responsibility is to ensure the uninterrupted functioning of Aalto's IT services and to develop the IT technology and the infrastructure to support the university's digital transformation.
Before Aalto my career focused mainly on the business world, where I worked in different management and consulting roles in the IT sector. The reason I came to Aalto was the opportunity to work in a key role at the heart of the digital transformation of a modern and international university. We have an especially great opportunity to see through a unique change in the university's operation that can take Aalto to the next level.
However, the best thing in my job is definitely the people. The variety of people here at Aalto is what makes the work particularly interesting!'
