More About Michel Poulain

Michel Poulain is Senior Researcher at the Estonian Institute for Population Studies at Tallinn University in Estonia. He earned his Ph.D. in demography from Université catholique de Louvain in Belgium, where he currently serves as Emeritus Professor. Since 1999, Michel has studied supercentenarians (people reaching extreme old ages) for the International Database on Longevity. Among his findings, Michel discovered that centenarians in Sardinia were not randomly distributed on the island; instead they were concentrated in an area that he named ‘Blue Zone’. From there he began a quest to validate age and centenarians worldwide. In 2005 Michel began working with Dan Buettner to identify other “Blue Zones” such as Nicoya (Costa Rica) and Ikaria (Greece). Since 2004 he has worked in collaboration with Dr. Gianni Pes of Sassari University to publish scientific papers summarizing the characteristics of four out of the five Longevity Blue Zones identified to date. Michel’s research focuses primarily on longevity determinants with special emphasis on demographic, socio-cultural and anthropological perspectives.
