You and your research (brief description)
I have worked on the history of systems thinking and cybernetics, especially as applied to global ecology and evolutionary theories. My PhD thesis is focused on the work of Marxist philosopher and physician Alexander A. Bogdanov. I am especially interested in his General science of organization, Tektology. During my postdoctoral fellowship, held at the Centre Alexander Koyré in Paris, I have explored the convergence between cybernetics and the earth system science during the Cold War period and looked at the work of Vladimir I. Vernadsky with reference to the Anthropocene theory. My current research deals with the history of Biosphere studies and the development of global environmental governance during the second half of the 20th century.
