Eva Beaujouan studies fertility and family trends in several European countries. She has studied applied mathematics and demography at Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, and defended her Ph.D. on "partnership and fertility trajectories after union breakup" in 2009. During a 3-year postdoc at the ESRC Centre for Population Change (University of Southampton), she constructed a 25-years data series based on the General Household Surveys, and made use of this one for studying change in cohabitation, fertility and education, including the link between enrollment and postponement of the first birth. She has 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.
