We are delighted to announce that we have a new team member in OiOi. She is Meeri Mäkäräinen who strengthens our scale of skills to create unique and meaningful interactive installations. Just few months ago she had the defence of her dissertation. We are glad to have the opportunity to work with her.
Here is views written by Meeri herself:
“Last November, I defended my doctoral thesis titled “Blending and Exaggeration of Animated Facial Expressions of Emotion” at Aalto University. My thesis focused on ways to create emotionally believable facial animation for characters in movies, games or virtual worlds. Now it is time to move on to researching how expressive characters in smart spaces could be used for supporting the development of social and emotional skills of children. I am really excited to start my work as a postdoc at OiOi!”
