In September 2016, she finished her MSc in Demography (Dissertation topic: “Spatially Heterogeneous Associations of Non-marital Childbearing. A Regional Analysis of Germany”) at the University of Southampton. Advanced Quantitative Methods (Spatial and Event History Analysis) are also in her area of interest. Additionally, Stephanie holds an MA in History with a special focus on Historical Demography from the University of Münster, Germany (Dissertation topic: “Rural Living Standards and Demographic Responses to Short-term Economic Stress. An Event History Analysis of Fertility in 19th-Century Wittgenstein (Westphalia)”).
