Areas of research

  • Pensioners’ economic well-being   
  • Views on pensions   
  • Retirement and quality of life


My research focuses on pensioners’ subjective economic well-being, but also on their trust in and general views on the pension system. My research is based on both international (EU-SILC) questionnaire surveys and those conducted by the Finnish Centre for Pensions. I received a Master’s degree in sociology from the University of Helsinki and a Ph.D. from the University of Turku.
