I am a formally oriented philosopher, applying computational techniques to questions of social epistemology and political philosophy. My current research is focused on explanations and interventions for phenomena of collective irrationality.
political methodology research covering agent-based modelling and simulation of political phenomena,computational models of political phenomena (political attitudes, elite, corruption, political clientelism, state capture)
My research centers on isolating how and to what extent political institutions themselves shape policy. I use computational modeling (agent-based and simulation) to gain theoretical leverage on the issue. This approach allows me to place groups of actors with given preferences into different institutional settings in order to gauge the effect of the rules of the game on political outcomes. Most of my research examines the ways in which legislative processes affect issues of political economy, such as income redistribution.
My research interests fall at the intersection of Middle East area studies and political sociology. I am interested in the interaction between regime repression and contentious mobilization in (mostly Arab) authoritarian regimes.
I am a multidisciplinary researcher (PhD Candidate) at the University of Helsinki. My research interests include sustainable behaviour change, ecological psychology, cognitive science and cultural evolution. I have a soft spot for complex systems and philosophy of science.
