Dr. Keijo Haataja received the Ph.Lic. degree in Computer Science from the University of Eastern Finland (UEF) in 2007, and the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from UEF in 2009. Since 2002, he has been a senior assistant of Wireless Communications and Data Security at UEF. Since 2009, he has also been a project manager/coordinator of several Finnish and EU projects at UEF. Since 2012, he has been the Head of Research in CI (Computational Intelligence) research group at UEF. In addition, he is a member of Bluetooth Security Expert Group (SEG), which provides Bluetooth working groups and the Bluetooth SIG with expertise in a wide range of security issues. The goal of the Bluetooth SEG group is to identify threats to Bluetooth wireless security and to ensure that these threats are mitigated through Bluetooth specification enhancements, whitepapers, test cases, and test tools that identify security vulnerabilities in devices. Moreover, he has been the Head of Research and Product Development of SenSoftia Oy since 2013. His main research interests include wireless communications, wireless security, mobile systems, sensor networks, data communications, and intelligent autonomous robots. His doctoral dissertation “Security Threats and Countermeasures in Bluetooth-Enabled Systems” is the world’s first practically oriented doctoral dissertation on Bluetooth security! He has also written three scientific books about Bluetooth security issues and published over 50 scientific research articles in different fields of his research topics.
Tomi Kinnunen (firstname.lastname@example.org) received the Ph.D. degree in computer science from the University of Eastern Finland (UEF, formerly Univ. of Joensuu) in 2005. From 2005 to 2007, he was an associate scientist at the Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R) in Singapore. Since 2007, he has been with UEF. In 2010-2012, his research was funded by the Academy of Finland in a post-doctoral project focusing on speaker recognition. His recent research focuses especially on noise robustness and spoofing countermeasures for speaker verification. He is a regular participant to the NIST speaker recognition evaluations. He was the chair of Odyssey 2014: The Speaker and Language Recognition workshop. He serves currently as an associate editor in Digital Signal Processing and IEEE/ACM Transactions on Audio, Speech and Language Processing.
