Eva Beaujouan studies fertility and family trends in low fertility countries, and more particularly the trend towards later fertility. She has studied applied mathematics and demography at the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. Hosted at INED during her Ph.D, she defended her Ph.D. thesis on "Male and female partnership and fertility trajectories after union breakup in France" in 2009. After a postdoc at the ESRC Centre for Population Change (University of Southampton), she joined the ERC-funded EURREP project within the Wittgenstein Centre in 2012 to work on aggregate trends in fertility, fertility intentions and partnership by level of education. She also studies the link between enrollment and first birth postponement, the effect of changing partnership trajectories on the number of children at the population level, and the consequences of later childbearing for childlessness and completed fertility.
