Jussi Nummela, PhD.
Entrepreneur, founder, owner, CEO
The CEO of Riffid, Jussi Nummela is the first person in Finland, and in fact in Europe, who has completed his engineering PhD studies and written his doctoral theses exclusively on application of RFID. For years he has been focussing on the RFID technology and in particular, its practical aspects. This has formed an excellent foundation and expertise in developing services provided by Riffid.
The doctoral theses of Jussi deal with application of passive UHF RFID in paper industry, which has been considered one of the most challenging areas of application of the RFID technology by reason of the complex operating environment. Through addressing these multifaceted problems and their solutions in his work Jussi has become exceptionally familiar with aspects warranting attention, generally encountered in RFID applications.
