I am a mathematician and a cognitive scientist working as a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Oulu, Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering, Center for Ubiquitous Computing (UBICOMP) (Oulu, Finland). I am also affiliated as an Adjunct Professor at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of Helsinki. My main interest is in theoretical investigation on topics related to logic, set theory and model theory, cognitive modeling, computational cognitive neuroscience, philosophy of mind, enactivist and ecological theories of perception. I find applications to robotics, VR, machine learning and data-analysis exciting and important. Additionally to my main work as a scientist, I occasionally do consulting through the companies Bats and Seahorses and Tensoritulo Oy. As a hobby I am interested in connections between mathematics and art. I am enthusiastic about teaching and education on all levels from kindergarten to university (I am a contributor to the project NoBoxToday, have lectured around 10 university courses on mathematics and machine learning, and supervised a dozen BSc and MSc theses) . My other hobbies include floor acrobatics and drawing.
Previously I have worked at: University of Helsinki, Aalto University, University of Vienna (at the Kurt Gödel Research Center for Mathematical Logic), Mittag-Leffler Institute, as well as a U.S.-based hedgefund in New Jersey. See my full CV here.
