Oscillation between philosophy and history is characteristic for my academic career. I graduated first in Contemporary History at the University of Turku, receiving a Master of Social Sciences in 1997. While I had studied philosophy already in Turku, I moved on to major in Philosophy at the New School University, finishing a MA in 2001. After this I begun studying for a PhD in Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh, which was awarded in 2006. Since then I have been a visiting research fellow in philosophy at the University of Durham (2006-2008) and currently (since 2008) a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Leiden.
The project in Leiden is on "Philosophical Foundations of the Historiography of Science."
My funding at the moment comes from The Emil Aaltonen Foundation, from which I received Young Researcher's Award in 2010. My current project is to write a book on philosophy of historiography, asking what post-narrativist philosophy of historiography would look like.
My expertise resides in various forms and degrees in philosophy of science (specifically Thomas Kuhn), philosophy of historiography of science (including theories in science studies and in sociology of science) and philosophy of (general) historiography.
The most important publications of mine are in Studies in History and Philosophy of Science, Philosophy of Science, History and Theory and Journal for the Philosophy of History. If you wish to know the details of them or get a complete list of all publications, please see my list of publications
