Researcher / Doctoral Candidate at Aalto University School of Electrical Engineering. September 2, 2013 – present.
I am studying the statistical properties of circulating current losses in random-wound electrical machines. I have developed and utilized several approaches for efficient modelling of stranded windings, and also a method to model the uncertain packing process of conductors in the slots. You can find more information here.
Master’s Thesis Worker, ABB Oy, Jan 2013 – August 2013.
I made my master’s thesis about modelling additional losses in direct-on-line induction machines. I wrote numerical-analytical script for loss calculation, and compared the results to measurements and FEM calculations.
Trainee, ABB Oy, May 2012 – August 2012 and September 2012 – December 2012 (16 h / wk).
I improved the accuracy of an analytical in-company current calculation software based on statistical analysis of measurement data. Furthermore, I analysed the dependency between the accuracy of no-load power calculation and machine dimensions.
Course Assistant, Aalto University School of Science, September 2011 – December 2011.
I held bi-weekly calculation exercises for a large group (~30) second-year bachelor’s students on a mathematics course. Additionally, I graded a large portion of the exam papers.
Trainee, ABB Oy, June 2011 – August 2011.
I updated the in-company selection manual for induction motor connection cables, to cover more complicated and comprehensive overload cycles. The work was based on analytical thermal modelling of the cables, and some measurement data.
Research Assistant, Aalto University School of Science and Technology, May 2010 – August 2010 and September 2010 – May 2011 (8 h / wk).
I assisted in planning and building a calorimeter for the measurement of core losses in induction machine. I modelled the heat distribution in a stator teeth with a finite-difference software of my own making, and participated in designing a very effective cooling system for the magnetic excitation system of the measurement setup.
Master’s Thesis Instructor, January 2015-July 2015.
Thesis title “Monte Carlo Analysis of Circulating Currents in Random-Wound Electrical Machines”.
Bachelor’s Thesis Instructor, Spring 2016, Autumn 2013.
Course Assistant and Substitute Lecturer, September 2013 – present.
I have held calculation exercises and stepped-in as a lecturer on the following courses: Numerical Methods in Electromechanics, Design of Electrical Machines, Transient Phenomena in Electrical Machines, Electromechanics and Electrical Drives.
Proof-reader for Master’s Thesis, Autumn 2014.
Course Assistant, Autumn 2011.

Positions of Trust
Online Community Manager, Aalto University Research Group of Electromechanics, 2016-
I’m managing the social media presence of my research group on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.
Editor-in-charge, AD, Finnish Border Guard, 2008.
I was responsible for my Unit’s (Rajajääkärikomppania, Border Guard Company) journal during the latter half of my year-long conscription service.
Hobbies and Interests
I’m a bodybuilding and sports nutrition geek. I love science fiction, and observing it slowly become science fact ( with e.g. new spacecraft propulsion systems, augmented reality and the like).
