Poika Isokoski

I am a HCI Researcher with a Computer Science background. I received my M.Sc. degree from the University of Tampere in late 1999 and my Ph.D. in May 2004.

I work in the MIPI project on perception of cultural meaning in pictures. I am also the head of the Visual Interaction Research Group at TAUCHI.

You can find my publication history with links to the full text papers on the publications page linked in the menu on the left. The Google Scholar page lists the same information and is often more up-to-date. It also has links to most of my co-authors over the years.

Teaching in 2016

TIEVS52 Research Methods in HTI (book exam) Periods 1-4.

M.Sc. Thesis supervision

In 2016 I will start new thesis supervision only if the topic fits my specialty (text entry, input devices or gaze-based interaction). Old supervision agreements will continue as usual.
