Ph.D

Short bio

Leena Arhippainen is a user experience researcher at Center for Internet Excellence. In the SILC project, she investigates user experiences of virtual and physical learning environments. In the previous Chiru project, her research topics related to 3D UI user experiences. In the ADAMOS project, she led UX studies and co-operated closely with sociologists from the University of Grenoble (UPMF), France. Arhippainen received her Master's degree in Information Processing Science at University of Oulu in 2002 and Ph.D. degree in 2009. Her doctoral thesis focused on UX research methods in mobile device contexts. She created ten user experience heuristics during her doctoral studies and they have been used in Interaction Design course and UX studies.
