Areas of interest
University Lecturer (Associate Professor), Finnish Academy Research Fellow, and Docent in Theoretical Philosophy at the University of Helsinki. My specialization is contemporary analytic metaphysics, with special emphasis on methodological issues. Primary research interests include the metaphysics and epistemology of modality, methodology of metaphysics, essence, natural kinds, laws of nature, metaphysics of science, grounding, fundamentality, and a priori knowledge. Sometimes I identify myself as a neo-Aristotelian. I also have research interests in epistemology, philosophical logic, philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, and history of philosophy (Aristotle).
