He is also an Emeritus Professor at the advanced school École pratique des hautes études (EPHE) in Paris. He studies human longevity, with the aim of understanding the relations between health and longevity. In particular, he measures the impact that the increase in adult life durations may have on the health status of the elderly population.

Since its creation in 1989, he has been the coordinator of the International Network on Health Expectancy (REVES), which brings together more some 200 researchers worldwide. He is co-responsible for the development of the International Database on Longevity (IDL) in association with the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (Rostock) and INED (Paris). He is the project leader of the healthy longevity project granted by AXA Research Fund: the Five-Country Oldest Old Project (5-COOP). He is also advisor to the Director of INED, the French National Institute on Demographic Studies (INED) on longevity and ageing issues. He was the project leader of the European Joint Action EHLEIS (2011-2014) which provided analysis of disability-free life expectancies in the European Union and part of the BRIDGE-Health project (2015-2017) which aimed to prepare the transition towards a sustainable and integrated EU health information system. He was one of the Directors of the French Research Consortium on ageing and longevity (GDR CNRS 3662, 2014-2017) which prepared the way for ILVV, the French Institut de la Longévité, des Vieillesses et du Vieillissement.
