Self-bonding of veneers - This thesis describes how a new compact, densified board can be obtained by pressing veneers without glue. The self-bonding phenomenon is due to heat and pressure only. The research focused on understanding the effect of temperature, pressure and pressing time on the characteristics of the board, particularly on its strength, colour and water-resistance.​

On Mobility Solutions in Heterogeneous Networking Environments - The research is focused on supporting mobility, in a secure and scalable way, in heterogeneous networking environments. A uniform architecture is proposed where mobility management for devices ranging from computers to small, resource constrained sensor devices, is supported by the same infrastructure. An active probing mechanism is also proposed that improves handover decisions for mobile devices in networks under load.

Industrial Wood Drying, Airflow Distribution, Internal Heat Exchange and Moisture Content as Input and Feedback to the Process. The vision in the research was that the industrial wood drying can be improved. To get better in-data and feedback to the process, possible improvements in the moisture content determination was examined. Possible decreases in drying related energy expenses through reduction of the air circulating fan speeds and internal heat exchange was also investigated.
