Ignacio Madero-Cabib is a Ph.D. student in Social Sciences in the LIVES Research Center at the Université de Lausanne in Switzerland (see www.unil.ch/unisciences/IgnacioMaderoCabib). In his Ph.D. thesis, he analyzes different dimensions of the transition to retirement, such as the institutional pension context, retirement timings, vulnerability in late careers, voluntarism of late retirement, and objective and subjective well-being of retirees. He is particularly interested in understanding how life course factors, like experiences in family and occupational domains as well as positional factors, impact those retirement dimensions. In his research, he focusses on Switzerland and Germany with data coming mainly from the retrospective Survey of Health, Aging and Retirement in Europe (SHARELIFE). The quantitative methods he uses are Event History Analysis and Optimal Matching Analysis.
