Pekka Murto (Doctor of Arts) is a postdoctoral researcher in the TRIPOD project. In TRIPOD, Pekka has studied the Finnish energy retrofit market from a user perspective in order to understand the slow diffusion of energy retrofits and associated energy saving and generation technologies.

Prior to joining INUSE in early 2018, Pekka studied the use of design in complex and networked product development, with a specific focus on design management and sustainable design in the shipbuilding industry. In addition to academic research, Pekka has experience of working as an industrial design consultant, both in a design consultancy and as a micro-entrepreneur.
