Dr. Nitzan Peri-Rotem

Philomathia Post-doctoral Research Associate

A Philomathia fellow at the Department of Sociology, University of Cambridge. Her research interests lie in the field of social demography with a focus on social and cultural determinants of fertility patterns in post-industrialized countries. Before joining Cambridge in 2014, she completed a DPhil at the University of Oxford on the role of religion in shaping women’s family and employment patterns in Western Europe. In her current work, she explores the social incentives and constraints to family formation and expansion in the UK and Europe. In particular, she is interested in the relationship between education and fertility outcomes and the way this relationship has changed over time.
