Éva 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 Vienna Institute of Demography (Wittgenstein Centre) in 2012 to work on trends in fertility, fertility intentions and partnership, integrating education (level, participation) to her studies. 

Starting November 2020, Eva Beaujouan is currently TT assistant professor at the Department of Demography, University of Vienna (Wittgenstein Centre). She is the Principal Investigator of the FWF stand-alone project “Later Fertility in Europe” (Jan. 2019-June 2023), studying the consequences of childbearing postponement for fertility levels in low fertility countries. She also received an ERC-consolidator grant for 5 years of research, BIC.LATE, investigating the “Biological, Individual and Contextual Factors of Fertility Recovery” (Grant agreement ID: 101001410, Sept. 2021-Aug. 2026).
