M.Sc. (Technology), project researcher


I did my master’s thesis in Department of Media Technology (Aalto University School of Science) titled “Usability evaluation of design solutions for tablet magazines” in 2012. I studied how variations in structure and functionality of a tablet magazine affects its usability. Methods used in the user tests were eye-tracking, think-aloud, and performance measurement among others.

I joined MCRG in the beginning of 2013 and will continue working with tablet and e-reader usability in the Next Media program.

Fields of interest:
– E-reading usability
– Publication content modeling
– Planning data in newspapers
