My formal educational background is in philosophy and political science, but I have also published in the fields of semiotics and sociology. The title of my PhD thesis in political science was An Outline for a Theory of Political Semiotics (Tallinn University, Institute of Political Science and Governance, 2011). My current research interests include theories of power, governance networks and democracy, and relational approaches in the social sciences. In the University of Tampere the title of my Kone Foundation project proposal was “A Political Semiotic Approach to Governance Networks.” During the period of 2013-2014 I will develop the ideas outlined in my PhD thesis and recent publications into a more coherent framework of political semiotics and widen the scope of my previous research by including new topics such as political learning and epistemic governance.
