Olga Grünwald is a PhD candidate at NIDI. Her doctoral research investigates the involvement in unpaid work around the transition into retirement. She is particularly interested in the link between paid work and different types of unpaid work (e.g., volunteering, informal caregiving and grandparenting). Besides that, she is also interested in quantitative research methods and survey methodology. Olga holds a Master’s degree in Sociology and Social Research from the University of Cologne. Before starting her PhD project, she has worked for the German Family Panel (pairfam) and has interned with the Population Unit of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE).
