Research
My primary research interests are life-time determinants of healthy aging, especially modifiable lifestyle factors such as obesity and physical activity. My current research projects include:
- Finnish Retirement and Aging study (FIREA, www.utu.fi) in which we examine health behavioral and clinical changes during retirement transition.
- REACT - randomized controlled trial in which we develop, conduct and evaluete an innovative technology-supported physical activity intervention among recently retired public sector workers.
- Predictors of extended working life
- Impact of working conditions on health and functioning in old age, Determinants of frailty, Obesity and its consequences among older people
