Markus Ahola

I have graduated with a Doctor of Arts in 2017. My multidisciplinary 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. I’m also an alumnus of the LAMK – Institute of Design. Before university, I have worked as an industrial designer in the industry, developing user experiences and various kinds of products. My research concentrates on the interaction between people and environmental design in which the case study has been a cruise ship. I enjoy working in between disciplines and with pleasure work currently as a project manager for Aalto’s Experience Platform. In my current position, I foster multidisciplinarity and visibility of various aspects of human experience research of Aalto University and associates and act as a hub for internal and external contacts and bring together potential research partners within Aalto University and across external collaborators.
