Senior Scientist, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland

Ville Ollikainen received his M.Sc. degree in Technical Physics in 1989 from Helsinki University of Technology with an academic minor and spent two and a half years working in the laboratory of Industrial Psychology, covering studies in computer assisted training and organization development. He worked previously in the Technical R&D of MTV Finland holding the responsibility for developing broadcast automation, regional advertising systems and interactive teletext services. Since 1999, Ollikainen has been working at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland as a Senior Scientist focusing on media integration, the field of his doctorate thesis planned for early 2020. Ollikainen has contiguously participated in projects related to new media technologies, excluding a period of entrepreneurship: he was one of the main inventors behind Envault Corporation Oy, a data security company he was establishing in 2007. He has contributed to over 30 patent applications. His current activities include privacy preserving recommendation systems, privacy-by-design targeted advertising and social networking services, most recently coordinating a European Union's Horizon 2020 funded project HELIOS (grant #825585), developing a novel peer-to-peer platform for privacy-enabled social media. Related to the topics of privacy, in July 2019 Ollikainen joined Cyber Security research team at VTT.
