Clara: Science? What sort of science? Astronomy? Chemistry?
Doc: Actually I’m a student of all sciences.
That quote from Back to The Furure III quite nicely summarizes my research interests.
So I do not see much sense in categorizing myself to some particular field of study. Here's a list of some current projects that I have:
If you want to read some of my more or less thoughtful inquiries, go to writings section.
For educational background... I've found formalities unimportant and consider people believing in degrees and such not
very competent. Worth thinking is what is said in the editorial of Richard Posner's upcoming
Public Intellectuals : A Study of Decline
"With the rapid growth of the media in recent years, highly visible forums for discussion have multiplied,
while greater academic specialization has yielded a growing number of narrowly trained scholars.
Posner tracks these two trends to their inevitable intersection: a proliferation of modern academics
commenting on topics outside their ken. The resulting scene--one of off-the-cuff pronouncements,
erroneous predictions, and ignorant policy proposals--compares poorly with the performance of earlier
public intellectuals, largely nonacademics whose erudition and breadth of knowledge were well suited
to public discourse"
Well, I have nine years of comprehensive school, three years high school and a university degree. In the
high school, I got interested in mathematics, physics and history. I continued at the
University of Helsinki completing some higher courses in law, economics, philosophy, mathematics and physics. I never
completed any course in computer science although I've been working in the field for my conscious life.
