He holds a BA in Business Administration from Kaunas Technology University (Lithuania, 1998) and an MA in Practical Philosophy from Vytautas Magnus University.

His main interests are aesthetics, ethics, social critique, philosophy of science, modern social and cultural theory and interdisciplinarity. In 2014 and 2015 he was a young National Excellence research fellow at ISES. His research interests at iASK are the methodology of social sciences from philosophical and sociological perspectives; the impact of recent developments in natural sciences for social sciences (especially the implications of complexity theory).
