Matias Rusanen

Matias Rusanen received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in applied physics from the University of Eastern Finland in 2019 and 2021, respectively. He has specialized in medical physics during his M.Sc. studies. He joined the Sleep Technology and Analytics Research Group in 2019, and manually scored over 300 overnight sleep studies during his first year as a research assistant. Not surprisingly, he quickly got motivated and interested in the automatic ways to analyze sleep recordings. He is currently pursuing his Ph.D. degree at the Department of Applied Physics, University of Eastern Finland (UEF). He is currently working as a Junior Researcher at the Department of Applied Physics, UEF and Diagnostic Imaging Center, Kuopio University Hospital. His research interests include the development and validation of wearable sensor technology for diagnostics of sleep disorders as well as for sleep research use and the integration of automatic analysis methods with these systems.
