Areas of research

  • Economic inequality, poverty and deprivation
  • Pension reforms
  • Partial old-age pension
  • Social security
  • Pensioner income


My research focuses on pension reform assessments, issues relating to economic inequality and questions relating to income. Recently I have studied the impact of the rising retirement age and the partial old-age pension. I make use of both register and survey data. My competencies also include measuring poverty and deprivation.

Ongoing research projects

  • Changes in earnings after drawing the partial old-age pension
  • Livelihood and economic wellbeing of pensioners
