Areas of research

Pensioner income  

  • income, education, saving, wealth  
  • subjectively perceived income and life satisfaction  
  • impact of household structure on income  


In my research, I approach economic livelihood and well-being of retirees and people approaching their retirement age from different angles. In addition to the traditional approach of income distribution, I examine the effects of consumption and wealth on the economic well-being of retirees, as well as retirees’ life satisfaction and subjective perception of their livelihood. 

I did my Master’s degree in economics and my Licentiate degree in social policy. In the dissertation that I am working on I research the significance of the household structure on retirees’ livelihood.
