Students supervised by Helger Lipmaa
Students from Tartu
Before I left to Finland in 2000, I was happily supervising a number of MSc and
PhD students from Tartu:
- Meelis Roos (PhD student)
- Sven Heiberg (MSc student)
- Priit Karu (MSc student)
- Oleg Mürk (MSc student)
- Sven Laur (PhD student, MSc in
2003). He spent the Spring 2003 in Helsinki, finishing his MSc, and
starting to write with me papers on his upcoming PhD topic.
(Note: a MSc student in Tartu has defended her/his BSc degree and is
therefore not considered to be undergraduate anymore).
I am now again accepting students from Tartu!
Students from Helsinki
Until 31.03.2005, I worked at the Helsinki University of Technology. When
leaving, I had three students working under me, Emilia Käsper (BSc 2004), Sven Laur (MSc 2003), and Johan Wallén
(MSc 2003). Johan and Sven were PhD students. Emilia defended her BSc thesis
in 2004. I also had some "industrial" PhD students (by some reason they were
still working in industry): Tatiana Issaeva, Lauri Tarkkala, Alexey Vyskubov
etc. Markku-Juhani O. Saarinen and Silja
Mäki were previously associated with me.
