Antti is a researcher at Lappeenranta University of Technology, and a postdoctoral researcher at Lero, the Irish Software Research Centre at Dublin City University. His main research interests are sociotechnical systems, computer-supported collaboration, social network analysis, gamification, and computer science education. Currently he is involved in smart city service research in the BIG research group at DCU and Lero.
His current research projects include investigating how volunteer groups create smart city services for sustainability, bibliometrics and network analysis research with the NAILS project, and investigating the links between motivation and adaptive gamification.
