Piiastiina, researcher

I'm an information systems researcher at University of Oulu, Finland. I joined OASIS research group at University of Oulu in the summer of 2014, and I'm now working on persuasive systems.  My research topics include (but are by no means limited to!) cognitive aspects of creating and using behaviour change support systems (BCSSs). My first degree (MA) is from English philology (2000), and my PhD is in the field of applied psychology from Northumbria University in the UK (2013). My working background is very strongly in R&D usability and user experience research, working on mobile touch interfaces, such as web browsers, text inputs (various languages), messaging, and widgets. ‚Äč
