Curriculum Vitae

Aapo Hyvarinen studied undergraduate mathematics at the universities of Helsinki (Finland), Vienna (Austria), and Paris (France), and obtained a Ph.D. degree in Information Science at the Helsinki University of Technology in 1997.  After post-doctoral work at the Helsinki University of Technology, he moved to the University of Helsinki in 2003. In 2008, he was appointed Professor of Computational Data Analysis, and in 2013, Professor of Computer Science. In 2016, he became Professor of Machine Learning at the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit, University College London, UK.

Aapo Hyvarinen is the main author of the books "Independent Component Analysis" (2001) and "Natural Image Statistics" (2009), and author or coauthor of more than 200 scientific articles.  He is Action Editor at the Journal of Machine Learning Research and Neural Computation and Editorial Board Member in Foundations and Trends in Machine Learning. He has served as Contributing Faculty Member of Faculty of 1000 Prime. Google Scholar gives him approximately 40,000 citations.
