Dean Gary Marquis has appointed Elina Karvonen, M.Soc.Sc., as development manager of the School of Engineering. Her duties are scheduled to begin on 1 June 2021 as current Development Manager Soile Koukkari leaves for retirement in September.

Karvonen was previously employed as a donor engagement manager in the Advancement and Corporate Engagement unit of Aalto University since 2017. She has worked at Aalto since 2011, and before her current position she has served as the corporate relations manager of the School of Engineering and coordinated Aalto University's Multidisciplinary Institute of Digitalisation and Energy. 

'I am delighted to have Elina Karvonen join the school's management team.  In particular, I appreciate her commitment to develop and improve our academic activities. She is already familiar with our school, our fields of study and our stakeholders, while also having a vision of the challenges we will have to face in the future,' Dean Marquis noted.

Karvonen is also in the process of preparing her doctoral dissertation at the Tampere University in the field of higher education research. Her dissertation focuses on research group management in changing research environments.

'I am excited to take on a development manager's duties. The operating environment for universities is always changing. Even now we are in the middle of a large transformation that will result in the continuing evolution of universities. By taking a wide view of this transformation we can get a better idea of how a university of the future should be run,' notes Elina Karvonen.
