About me

I am Professor of Machine Automation in of IHA-Innovative Hydraulics and Automation research group. My R&D interests include: 

  • Real-world autonomous mobile working machines (mobile manipulators)
  • Whole body motion estimation and control of rough terrain mobile manipulators
  • Heavy-duty robotics motion and contact force controls 
  • Advanced high performance and energy-efficient actuators, and their non-linear controls
  • Remote Handling/teleoperated safety-critical systems (e.g. in ITER-project)

Fields of expertise

I have proven project-based track-record on multidisciplinary R&D topics dealing with full scale heavy-duty mobile working machines relevant to Finland-based companies and in big science projects: heavy-duty robotics motion/force controls, autonomous mobile working machines, nonlinear control engineering, and systems engineering in safety critical applications (e.g. in ITER-project). I published broadly in those fields during the past years.

Main positions of trust

Technical Editor in ASME/IEEE Transaction on Mechatronics 2015-2020.

Mission statement

I am committed into high impact academic research that targets into technology transfer projects with Finland-based industry and into creating high-tech products and jobs in industry for our students and my research group (MSc and Dr (Tech)) members graduating
