After participating in the project “Later Fertility in Europe”, Marie-Caroline Compans joined the ERC-funded “BIC.Late” project within the Department of Demography of the University of Vienna. She started in 2021 as a research assistant, shortly after earning a Ph.D. in Demography from the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. Her dissertation was on late first births in France, using micro-level data on male and female fertility, qualitative interviews, and a corpus of French media on late parenthood. She also holds a Master’s degree in Quantitative Sociology and Demography, and a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Political sciences. She is interested in determinants of later fertility and close topics such as medically assisted reproduction, changes in family norms and gender relations.
