Current research interests embrace epistemology and methodology of science, cognitive studies, evolution theory, anthropogeny and glottogenesis, semiotics and social semiotics, morphology and evolutionary morphology, geochronopolitics, intellectual and conceptual history.

Ilyin’s priority area of research is evolution of the three primary cognitive abilities of recognizing (1) sensual signals, (2) patterns, (3) relevance or meaning of functional relations into elaborate scientific methods of (1) metretics – calculus and statistical studies of numerical data-sets, (2) morphetics – study of forms, (3) semiotics – study of human cognition and communication.

His other priority area is evolution of time-space of human habitat and autopoiesis, particularly within Europe and Eurasia, interface areas of Balto-Pontida and Greater Mediterranean.
