My main research interests relate to the self/other relationship (empathy, interpersonal understanding, other minds, social cognition, group identification, etc.). In my work, I make use of phenomenology, philosophy of emotions, psychoanalysis, developmental psychology, social ontology, psychopathology, and theory of recognition.

I am leading the research group Experiential Demarcation: Multidisciplinary Inquiries into the Affective Foundations of Interaction (Vuorovaikutus ja rajankäynti: Minän ja toisen kokemuksellinen rajautuminen, University of Jyväskylä). The project is funded by the Kone Foundation and the Academy of Finland for 2018-2022.
