Yu You (Dr.)

Principal Researcher in the Contextual Media Systems Team
Media Technologies Lab, Tampere

Awarded 2012 Nokia Excellence Award

Joined Nokia Research Center (Tampere) in 2003 and started in the area of mobile runtime technologies, especially in J2ME Java UI and API standardization work. After that, joined the team "Collaboration and Communication" in Smart Space Lab and engaged very much in developing various mobile collaborative applications and platforms. At present, I am working in the team Mixed Reality Solutions and building mixed and augmented mobile solutions with social and playful experiences. Other research interests are HCI, Groupware and Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), Social SW and Virtual Worlds (especially 3D/AR/VR-based).

Research Interests

Web Service Engineering and architectures; virtual and mixed environments plus AR/MR/VR technologies; technologies for social networks and communities.

Research Projects

  • From 2009 to present, working in the Lived Mixed Reality Team (aka. Mixed Reality Solutions). Current project researches and develops highly scalable and resilient server infrastructure and RESTful services.
  • From 2007 to 2008, I joined the Communities and Collaboration Team in Interaction CTC. My current project studies enhanced and rich experience in virtual and real office environments; studies new technologies to manage communication and collaborative activities.
  • From 2003 to 2006, I've worked in Software Lab in the area of mobile runtime technologies, particularly in Java UI technologies for mobile phone. I have been involved in open-source projects like eRCP as one of project committers in Eclipse.
