I am the Head of Research at the Finnish Centre for Pensions and in charge of our research in support of the evaluation and development of earnings-related pensions in Finland. Recently, my research has focused on the livelihood of retirees and the gender gap in pensions. I have a Ph.D. in social politics (2004). My areas of interest are pension and social security systems, as well as research on the income and welfare of the population. I am active and will participate in, among other things, the social security reform committee during the period 2020–2027.
