My main research area is computational learning theory, in particular online learning. I have also worked on data mining and decision tree learning. I am part of the Algodan centre of excellence, and also keep close contact with the CoSCo research group.

Some of my publications are available on-line.


Separate examinations (erilliskokeet): some old exam papers and example solution.
