I am Associate Professor of Interaction Design at Aalto University. My work focuses on the design and evaluation of novel interaction techniques for mobile devices and other interactive surfaces. My research interests include human-computer interaction, design, and play.

I got my Masters degree in Visual Communication Design from Universidad Tecnológica Metropolitana (UTEM). In 2004 I received a Professional Doctorate in Engineering (PDEng) degree in User-System Interaction from the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), which included a one-year project in Philips Research. In 2009 I completed my PhD in Human-Computer Interaction at the TU/e, during which I was Visiting Researcher at the University of Art and Design Helsinki (TAIK).

I was Senior Researcher at Nokia from 2008 to 2014, where I was both leader in user-centered design projects overseeing all stages of the research process, and user experience (UX) expert evaluating future Nokia devices at different stages of the development process. In 2014 I returned to academia as Associate Professor of Interaction Design, first at the University of Southern Denmark and since 2017 at Aalto University.
