Areas of research

  • Working lives and pensions
  • Pension systems and pension policies in international comparison
  • Comparative welfare state research


My research focuses on comparative analysis of pension systems and policies. In particular, I am interested in how changes in working careers and labour markets affect pension adequacy. Furthermore, I am interested in gender equality, social policies over the life course and welfare state development in general. My academic background is in quantitative Political Science and Social Policy and I currently contribute to several international research networks and projects.
