Matti Karppa

I'm an undergraduate researcher at Aalto University School of Science, department of Information and Computer Science. Recently, I finished my bachelor's thesis on model-based hand tracking methods in the context of sign language videos. Unfortunately, the thesis is available in Finnish only.

Currently, I am engaged in research in the Academy of Finland funded CoBaSiL project. As part of the research, I am developing a program called SLMotion that will, in the future, become a tool for analysing signed language videos. Unfortunately, no public releases are available yet.

I am still working towards finishing my bachelor's degree, expecting to graduate with BSc. by Christmas 2012. I am also pursuing a Master's degree at Aalto.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me! The easiest way would be to send e-mail to, but I can also be reached via Facebook and IRCnet where I go by the handle 'localdoc'.
