Areas of research

  • Working in retirement
  • Disability pensions
  • Retirement


My recent research has focused on, among other things, differences in the employment of 60–68-year-olds by educational level, working while drawing an old-age pension and differences between the public and the private sector regarding retirement on a disability pension. I am also interested in the income in retirement and the economic wellbeing of pensioners. I use register and questionnaire data in my research. I have a doctoral degree from the University of Helsinki (2016).
