My name is Tommi Himberg and I work as a researcher at the Department of Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering at the Aalto University. You can contact me at first.lastname[at]aalto.fi.
My research is focused on interpersonal social interaction, entrainment and synchronisation. I am studying in vivo interaction in dyads and in groups. I was involved with the Brain2Brain project, working on two-person neuroscience. In 2015–2016, we conducted the research project “Social eMotions“, which combined contemporary dance and movement science. Currently my work is related to social neuroscience, and various behavioural explorations of interpersonal and intersubjective processes. I collaborate with the ICI-project in Paris, France.
Music cognition, musical interaction and music & movement are of my special interest. Before coming to Aalto, I was a university teacher at the Music Department of the University of Jyväskylä, where I taught a number of courses from research methodology to cognitive musicology, and did research at the Finnish Centre of Excellence in Interdisciplinary Music Research.
Below you can access my relatively up-to-date CV, list of publications, as well as teaching and research portfolios, which are somewhat outdated, as they are only updated sporadically.
