Person of the Day: University Lecturer Terhi Kilamo

 I’m Terhi, a long time member of the Pervasive Computing staff and a graduate of TUT. Since May 2017 I have been working as a University Lecturer. However, I have just recently returned to work after being on family leave for a bit. Before my current position I have been working in both teaching and research for many years.

Today, I teach programming. My main responsibility is Ohjelmointi 3: Tekniikat with its English counterpart Programming 3: Techniques. I’m also supervising both bachelor’s and master’s theses – a part of teaching I particularly like. I am active in our laboratory’s work towards the new Tampere University as well as other more administrative things such as curriculum planning, degree programs and other wibbly wobbly stuff.

My research interests are in modern software development. My doctoral work was about Open Source Software development and during my time as a post-doctoral researcher I focused on DevOps, Continuous Development and how software teams in general work best. 

On my free time I enjoy skiing, running, swimming and cycling. I am a geek so I also spend time watching movies and reading a good book. I have a special soft spot for Shakespeare. The Tempest is my favourite.

“We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.”
– Prospero, The Tempest Act 4, scene 1
