I am a professor emeritus of Marine technology. I have been working on the safety of ships both in open water and in ice. My main research interests during my 40- year long career have been devoted to full scale measurements of ice induced loads and analysis of the ice load statistics, simulation of ship performance in ice, development of advanced structural solutions for ships and development of system level safety of marine traffic.
I have also been Vice Dean of the School of Engineering with the main duties related to the Impact and Innovation activities of the School. I have extensive national and international co-operation heading e.g. the Center of Excellence for safe Arctic shipping funded by Lloyd’s Register Foundation from London (http://cearctic.aalto.fi/en/)
