Fumiaki Toyoshima

Postdoctoral researcher in applied philosophy

Fumiaki Toyoshima applies philosophical ontology to the foundations of computer ontology and is particularly interested in biomedical ontologies. His doctoral dissertation focused on the ontology of causality and its application to a general model of disease. His work also focuses on the ontology of dispositions, roles, events and affordances. He has conducted research at the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, at the University at Buffalo (United States) and at the Laboratory for Applied Ontology in Trento (Italy). At the GRIIS, he is working on the ontology of physiological measurements and of diagnosis.
