I'm Simo

I am an Academy of Finland Research Fellow and Associate Professor at the University of Oulu, Finland. I lead the Crowd Computing research group, where we focus on problems too difficult for computers alone.

I'm currently visiting the University of Tokyo in Japan.

My own research employs quantitative and qualitative methods, mostly in Digital Health and Crowdsourcing (see Google Scholar).

My passion projects include focus skills and developing everyday tools for crushing your goals with ease.
