Publications

I have written several peer-reviewed journal articles and conference papers and several other scientific publications including VTT publications, book chapter, reports, and short papers. The journal articles are published in highly ranked journals such as Journal of Systems and Software and International Journal of Agile Systems and Management. Furthermore, I have been a referee for scientific and scholarly journals such as Journal of Systems and Software, IEEE Software, International Journal of Agile and systems and Management, and International Journal of Knowledge and Learning.
