Hi, my name is Jonas Oppenlaender () and I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Jyväskylä in Central Finland. I have a diverse background with a range of academic and professional experiences.

I completed my PhD in the Center for Ubiquitous Computing at the University of Oulu, where I received a distinction for my thesis on creativity on microtask crowdsourcing platforms and the development of creativity support tools and crowd feedback systems. I also hold a M.Sc. degree in Computer Science with distinction from the University of Southampton and studied Industrial Engineering at the Technical University of Darmstadt in Germany and Linköping University in Sweden, earning a degree of Diplom-Wirtschaftsingenieur.

Before my doctoral position, I worked as a researcher at the Human-Centered Computing group at the Freie Universität Berlin and the Cluster of Excellence "Bild Wissen Gestaltung" in Berlin. I also have industry experience as a Business Analyst and Strategy Analyst at Alstom (now GE) and have worked in agile teams as a web developer at Seme4 and Liip.

In my academic research, I am interested in building socio-technical systems that allow humans and technology to work together to achieve tasks that would be beyond their individual capabilities. In the past, I have focused on facilitating knowledge transfer and supporting complex creative work. My scientific research interests, based on the academic literature I have read, are reflected here. Currently, my scientific research interest is in generative artificial intelligence.

In my spare time, I enjoy dabbling with AI-generated art and am a kettlebell salesman. I have lived, studied, and/or worked in several countries including Germany, Switzerland, France, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Macedonia, the United States, and Finland.
