Tutkimuksen ja opetuksen kuvaus

My research has focused on contemporary recognition theory, ontology, naturalism, and the nature of philosophical knowledge.

I have taught courses on recognition theory, philosophy of science, and ontology at various universities.

My current interests are focused on historical and systematic studies of blues music as a cultural phenomenon. Of special interest to me are the transformations of aesthetics, power-relations, and recognition that occurred during the blues revival of the 1960s.


I received my doctoral degree in theoretical philosophy at the University of Helsinki, where I also completed advanced studies in cognitive science. I have held research and teaching positions at the University of Helsinki, Academy of Finland, and University of Tampere for over two decades.

I have worked as a science adviser at the Academy of Finland. In my current position I work as a Senior Advisor at the University of Helsinki's Research Services, where I support the research management of the Faculty of Social Sciences.
