Most of my past research concerns the study of emergent representations for cognition and language, and natural language processing methods that build on these.
My current interest is more on researching wellbeing, that is, applying these methods for supporting individuals and societies towards wellness, meaning and happiness. An event that we organised related to this was Wellbeing Innovation Camp 29.8.-2.9.2011. There was also the Virtual Coach - Pathways of Wellbeing -research project funded by Tekes in 2011-2013.
Regaring wellbeing topics, we have studied social aspects such as loneliness and peer support. Also physical aspects measured by fitness measurements and work stress have beed examined.
