This site is independent from the Aalto University organisation and as such all the materials here are not necessarily supporting Aalto University views and policies. Even though the majority of the posts here are strictly related to my work and as such may link to the Aalto resources, the site may also provide my own opinion and views – those are my own views and not necessarily the Aalto University views. The posts here are also not pre-approved by the Aalto University communication team.
The other reason why the site is made separately from Aalto University is due to the lack of stability in the Aalto ecosystem. Many of the research pages I created when I came to Aalto have been deleted due to the department restructuring and merging. Unfortunately, I have not been given space to migrate them within the new Civil Engineering Department website. It seems that the best way to avoid such an experience in the future is to have a site which is not connected to the Aalto infrastructure and outside of the Aalto decision making system.
