Artistic and research interests

Professor in Process Control & Automation, Vice-Dean (Research)

My research focuses on megatrends in the field of process automation: industry 4.0, Industrial Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, Big Data, 5G, AI and their applications in the different fields of process industries. I am also interested in developing new process control and management theories, in order to run factories more efficiently and sustainably.

For process control we focus on are Model Predictive Control (MPC), and in data analytics we develop our own Fault Detection & Diagnosis (FDD) algorithms based on the problem under study. Algorithms are tested by simluation, but we have a particular focus on proof of concept in industry, together with European key research groups in the field

In addition to this research work, I am actively involved in the Academy of Finland, Research Council of Natural Sciences and Engineering, and also a member of the Aalto Research & Innovation steering group as a representative of the School of Chemical Engineering.
