Description of research and teaching

I am Coordinator of NCoE NordWel. In addition, I am a doctoral candidate in political history. My thesis deals with the history of the welfare state in Finland, more precisely I am studying the employers' reactions to state intervention in the sphere of social politics. Since 2005, I have been involved in various research projects focusing on labour market history and pension politics.

My research interests:

  • work
  • labour market
  • social policy
