Janne Toivola

I'm a postgraduate student at Aalto University and recently started as a software engineer at Eigenor. During the years 2003-2013, I was working as a research assistant and later as a researcher in the Parsimonious Modelling group in HIIT and Algodan. I have participated in ISMO, a multidisciplinary research project dealing with structural health monitoring and wireless sensor networks. I also collaborated in the Wireless Sensor Systems group.

See ISMO demonstrator in action.

Research and other interests

I'm interested in pattern recognition, machine learning, probabilistic graphical models, digital signal processing, embedded and distributed systems, and computer graphics. In addition to computer and information science as my major, I have studied software systems and interactive digital media as minors. Hobbies include amateur radio (OH2GXN) and electronics.

Recently, I compiled a list of interesting references. BibTeX.
