Markus Ahola

I’m a project manager of Aalto Experience Platform and design researcher. I have graduated with a Doctor of Arts in 2017. My dissertation about safety experience was conducted in a multidisciplinary manner half between the Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture and School of Engineering. Before university, I have worked as an industrial designer in the industry, developing user experiences and various kinds of products. My research concentrates on how human experience emerges from the interaction between people and environmental design characteristics. I enjoy working in between disciplines and implementing design approach to different fields. In my current position, I foster multidisciplinary and visibility of various aspects of human experience research of Aalto University and associates. I also act as a hub for internal and external contacts and bring together potential research partners within Aalto University and across external collaborators.
