    My primary field of interest is the history of modern philosophy; in 2007, I obtained my Ph.D. on Spinoza’s metaphysics. I have also taught and published on the philosophy of the human sciences.

    I am currently a Research Fellow in an Academy of Finland project Viral Culture in Early Nineteenth-Century Europe, led by Academy Professor Hannu Salmi. I am also Director of the Romantic Era Research Group (RERG), an Executive Committee member of Dynamis – The Finnish Network for Metaphysics, and an Organizing Committee member of the Finnish-Hungarian Workshop in Early Modern Philosophy.
