My research deals with retirement, retirement intentions, continued working and working lives.  My recent projects have dealt with self-employed persons’ pension insurance, pensioners’ income and the effects of pension reforms.  In my work, I use individual-level register and questionnaire data. I am a Doctor of Economic Sciences (University of Jyväskylä), majoring in national economics. I have specialised in labour economics, regional economics and applicable micro econometrics.
