My Google Scholar profile


My most recent research involves application of data mining methods on e.g. fossil data and studying equivalence relations for abstract argumentation frameworks. Overall I'm interested in constraint-based reasoning methods (in particular, but not limited to, nonmonotonic reasoning, answer set programming, aspects of modularity and equivalence, ...), algorithmic data mining, and combinations of the topics.

Starting from August 2010 I have worked as postdoctoral researcher at Department of Information and Computer Science at Aalto University. Currently, I'm working on a Academy of Finland funded post-doctoral project "Constraint-Based Reasoning for Data Mining" (Sep. 2011-Jan. 2016). I'm affiliated with Computational Logic Group.

Between Jan.-July 2010, I worked as postdoctoral researcher at Algorithmic Data Analysis (Algodan) Centre of Excellence at Helsinki Institute for Information Technology HIIT/ Department of Computer Science at University of Helsinki.

During the years 2001-2009 I worked on Academy of Finland funded projects: Methods for Constructing and Solving Large Constraint Models (2007-2009), Advanced Constraint Programming Techniques for Large Structured Problems (2005-2007), and Applications of Rule-Based Constraint Programming (2002-2005).
