DPhil in Sociology

Thesis: Fertility of Men (Working Title) 

Supervisor: Professor Christiaan Monden

Henrik-Alexander Schubert is a DPhil candidate at the University of Oxford, Nuffield College and the Max-Planck Institute for Demographic Research. In his research, he combines sociological theory with statistical methods for longitudinal data and demographic measures to examine the determinants and consequences of male fertility. Prior to joining Oxford, he attended the University of Stockholm and studied the impact of childcare policies on maternal employment, particularly the transition to employment following the first childbirth.

Henrik-Alexander's thesis will explore the underlying factors and mechanisms leading to the differences between male and female fertility, using advanced quantitative sociological and demographic methods. Examining the impact of modernisation, life-courses restructuration and regional population structures will provide insights into various factors which may obstruct or encourage childbearing. 

Research Interests: Demography, sociology, forecasting methods
