Kimmo Kovanen started working in Research Services in June 2022 substituting for Information Specialist Leena Rantamäki during her half-year sabbatical leave. His primary responsibilities include, e.g., tasks in the field of open science and open access publishing as well as validating research outputs in ACRIS.

Kovanen graduated from the University of Helsinki with an M.A. degree in classical philology, and he is currently working on his doctoral dissertation, which deals with ancient Greek music. Before starting in his current position at Aalto University, he has contributed to science, art, and culture, e.g., by working in the fields of research, and academic publishing as well as engaging in international cultural and academic institute activities.

In his spare time, Kimmo relaxes his mind by playing the guitar, reads piles of books, and engages in physical activities in the form of swimming and disc golf.
