Personal profile

Artistic and research interests

I'm an assistant professor in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) at Aalto University, and director of the AERIS (Aesthetic Experience in Interactive Systems) group. Drawing from my background in psychology, I research motivational and emotional aspects of the User Experience and Games to establish a better understanding of what constitutes "good" interaction. In particular, my work investigates how interactive systems support aesthetic and meaningful user experiences that endure beyond interaction. Moreover, I'm interested in methodology and meta-science, especially with regards to the role of psychological theories in HCI.

I lead the Evaluation workgroups in the H2020 project CAROUSEL+ and the COST action INDCOR .
