Poika Isokoski

I am a HCI Researcher with a Computer Science background. I received my M.Sc. degree from the University of Tampere in late 1999 and my Ph.D. in May 2004.

I work in administration and in research. I am responsible for the research infrastructure in Human Technology Interaction on the city center campus of the Tampere University. I also manage of two doctoral programs in the faculty of Information Technology and Communication Sciences:
Doctoral program in Computing and Electrical Engineering (DPCEE)
Doctoral program in Information and Systems (DPIS)

In research I work in varying projects in the HCI area Presently I am involved with the project on the Emotions in Online Digital Media and the Programmable Scent Environments project, both funded by the Academy of Finland.

You can find my publication history with links to the full text papers on the publications page linked in the menu on the left. The Google Scholar page lists the same information and is often more up-to-date. It also has links to most of my research collaborators over the years.

M.Sc. Thesis supervision

In 2020-2021 academic year I will start new thesis supervision in topics that fit my specialty (text entry, input devices or gaze-based interaction). Old supervision agreements will continue as usual.
