Ekaterina Hertog

Ekaterina Hertog is an Associate Fellow at the Center for Time Use Research and the Nissan Institute of Japanese Studies at the University of Oxford. Her research interests include marriage and childbearing trends in industrialised countries, marriage partner selection in contemporary Japan, and gender role inequality in East Asian countries, especially Japan. Her earlier research analysed the reasons behind the very low incidence of premarital childbearing in contemporary Japan. She has also looked at the factors affecting marriage formation pace and likelihood using data from one of the largest Japanese marriage agencies. Her current research focuses on analysing the gendered patterns of time use in contemporary Japan with the goal to put these into comparative perspective within East Asian countries as well as compare them more broadly with industrialised countries outside the region.
