I have received the B.S. degree in computer and system engineering from Tallinn University of Technology, Tallinn, Estonia, in 2001, the M.S. degree in automation engineering from Tampere University of Technology, Tampere, Finland, in 2004, and the Dr Tech. degree with the subject of formal methods in factory automation from Tampere Universtiy of Technology in December 2008.
I am an Associate Professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. I am working on developing a framework for efficient building of knowledge-based products and knowledge-driven systems, where the knowledge is represented in machine-processable format thus allowing automated reasoning. I am searching for and developing an “ideal” language for knowledge representation along with engineering tools to manage products and smart systems design via their life cycles with the help of the tools and techniques originated from the field of Artificial Intelligence. My research interests include efficient integration of multi-disciplinary engineering knowledge, its proactive use and support by digital tools.
Since 2020, I have been a supervisor for the following MSc students and their subjects.
I have (co-)supervised the following doctoral works.
Here come some of the tools:
