Hannu was born in Ylivieska, Finland, in 1978 and survived the polar bears, the freezing cold and the Nokia recruiting agents long enough to graduate from the University of Oulu. After brief stints in Cambridge University and working as a research scientist for the Finnish Defence Forces, he moved to Edinburgh and is now working on his PhD thesis in string theory.
Hannu is a junior member of the group, having only recently switched to Queen’s English as his primary medium of expression. His favourite method of writing involves starting at a blank A4 page until drops of blood form on his forehead.
