# smooth modular compactification of moduli of curves

Is there a smooth modular compactification of the moduli space of smooth curves of genus $g > 1$ over $\mathbb{C}$?

I am willing to allow for enrichments such as level structures. The compactification should be a projective variety rather than a stack. Any references are highly appreciated.

$\mathbb{P}^3$ compactifies the moduli space of genus 2 curves with level 3 structure and the choice of an odd theta characteristic.
