I’m a philosopher and cognitive scientist at the University of Eastern Finland. My current research focuses on systems science. My favorite part is thrill of exploring the foundational aspects.

I unite infodynamics, control theory, causal analysis, and modeling to understand how the multi scales of dynamical systems emerge. Another goal of my research is to understand in a quantitative manner how structures formed by operative relations in systems, such as geometrical driven interactions that are inspired from neural networks. The potential outcome of my research is to improve geometric model solutions, supervise scientific experiments, and highlight the importance of model solutions in considering organisation propositions at multi scales, causation, information, and operative relations in eco, artificial, and cyber systems. Additionally, I am interested in how formal methods and measurements based on cognitive dynamics can be used to acquire both the phenomenological level and content of natural language expressions.
