Matti Hämäläinen, Professor (pro tem) email@example.com
Matti Hämäläinen is a Professor of Information Technology at the Software Business and Engineering Institute (SoberIT), Department of Computer Science and Engineering, AaltoUniversity. Matti has a PhD in Information Systems from the University of Texas at Austin. He also holds MSc in Computer & Information Science from the University of Pennsylvania and MSc in Electrical Engineering from the Helsinki University of Technology.
Matti’s current research focuses on enabling open and user driven innovation, in particular in the mobile and ubiquitous services. As industries are in transition there is need to understand how to complement the manufacturing/provider centric, closed, rigid and centrally controlled approaches with open, flexible, networked and distributed models. Involving and empowering people (consumers/customers/citizens) to become co-creators and “everyday innovators” will be critical for addressing the future business and societal challenges. Development of methods and tools for “Living Labs” is a particular area of interest to help experimentation and multidisciplinary research of services in real-life settings. The application areas include healthcare and wellbeing, social media based services, and utility services for urban and rural communities across the technology spectrum (from low to high end devices and networks). He works with partners in Europe, US, China and Africa for studying enablers for locally and situationally relevant but globally replicable, sustainable and scalable solutions. Matti is also involved in developing service design and engineering curriculum related to the theme of Service Science.
