My major research fields are computational thinking, educational data mining, educational robotics, learning environments, technology education in K-12 settings, as well as ICT for development. I’m currently supervising four PhD research work in these fields, and teaching some of the related courses at the School of Computing. I was recently leading “ICT for Education in Eritrea” project, funded by Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs through the HEI-ICI capacity building program. I have been involved in several EU initiatives, for example CONSTRUIT! and TACCLE3 (Erasmus+ KA2), as well as in eCraft2Learn H2020 projects. I have been playing an active role in development of the annual SciFest science and technology festival at Joensuu. I was also leading the festival for three years at the beginning of 2010s. I have gained teaching, research, and project administration experience from several international collaboration initiatives from number of European and African countries, for example Eritrea, South Africa, Nepal, Tanzania, Zambia, and Mozambique.
