Cristina Suero joined the University of Vienna in September 2023 as a member of the ERC-funded project BIC.Late project within the Department of Demography. Her research focuses on understanding the differences in fertility behaviours according to social background in low fertility contexts. She also studies the causes and consequences of late fertility, as well as the use of medically assisted reproduction. Additionally, Cristina is interested in exploring other topics related to family sociology and social demography, including family and partnership formation patterns and new forms of families. Cristina is currently a final year PhD student at the Carlos III University of Madrid. During her doctoral studies, she was part of the LowFer Project (at the the Spanish National Research Council), which aimed to analyze the patterns of lowest-low and latest-late fertility in Spain. She holds a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology, a Bachelor's Degree in Political Sciences, and a Master of Science in Methodology of Research in Social Sciences.
