Matti Raasakka

Hi there!

My name is Matti, and this is my website.

I am a teacher at Aalto University and a researcher in theoretical physics. I am a member of the Micro and Quantum Systems Group at the Department of Electronics and Nanoengineering. In 2009-2013 I conducted my PhD research in Albert Einstein Institute (Potsdam, Germany), in the group of Daniele Oriti, and received my PhD in 2014 from Freie Universität Berlin. Here's my full CV.

My main fields of research are quantum information and theoretical high energy physics, in particular the field of quantum gravity, which strives to describe the currently unknown microscopic structure of spacetime. I have written a brief introduction to the subject and some of my favorite approaches, in case of interest. On the other hand, I have often found myself working on other related problems. You can find an up-to-date list of my research papers in arXiv.

In addition to these topics, I also have keen interests in complex systems science, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, robotics and evolutionary theory, among other scientific topics. I have taken several online courses in order to improve my programming skills and to learn more about these fascinating mind-bending subjects.

Let's also not forget that I sometimes write in a blog (in Finnish), where I discuss many of these favorite topics of mine.

You can also find me in Facebook, LinkedIn, ResearchGate,, Kaggle and GitHub.
