I am a Docent in the Department of Environmental and Biological Sciences at the University of Eastern Finland. My primary research interest is in how the cell works based on the 2nd law of thermodynamics and and the physics of complex dissipative dynamical systems.

Biology, unlike chemistry, lacks a foundation in physics. This matters, especially in genomics or molecular genetics, which presently is a major focus of research with the objective of reforming health care systems to be based on individual genome sequences. This approach is failing and new new view of biology is being proposed.

The basics of the new view are described “in a nutshell” here. The main publications supporting the new view are listed here.
