Further information is available in my Curriculum Vitae.
I received the elementary education from Jokivarren ala-aste and Ruusuvuoren yläaste, on the opposite site of the center of Korso. I chose to attend Simonkylän lukio for college-like education.
A couple of years after college, it was somewhat unclear to me what I would become when I grow up. (It is still somewhat unclear.) I spent three semesters at the University of Helsinki studying mathematics and physics and getting the first touch to the Internet and GNU/Linux.
At that rate, I could have graduated in three years, but I decided to switch to the Helsinki University of Technology to study computer science. After one year of studying, I served my country in the signal school of the Finnish Air Force at Tikkakoski from July 10, 1995 to June 3, 1996, and was given the training of a signal corporal and an officer. In 1998, I graduated from the Laboratory for Theoretical Computer Science as a Master of Science.
Professor Leo Ojala convinced me to pursue postgraduate studies and research. In 2000, I graduated as Licentiate of Technology, and I defended my doctoral thesis on November 28th, 2003. As part of my research I constructed a reachability analyser, a piece of software for modelling and verifying parallel and distributed systems.
