Biography

Esteban Calvo is a life-course sociologist and social epidemiologist interested in positive aging processes. Much of his work attempts to identify and understand the social factors experienced throughout life that influence the health and happiness of older adults, as well as to evaluate public policies and interventions that contribute to improving their well-being and benefit society as a whole. His current research agenda includes three threads: (1) assessing the impact of life-course statuses, transitions, and trajectories on a variety of health outcomes, from self-reports to physical measures and biomarkers; (2) understanding how individuals react to social contexts and public policies that they experience over the life course; and (3) improving our understanding of the challenges and opportunities posed by demographic change to aging-related policy throughout the world. His recent publications analyze the effects of work and retirement on health, the emotional impact of unemployment and pension policy, and the cultural and structural determinants of social security reforms and health policies. He is currently involved in a long-term project, ranging from biological markers to social contexts, with the ultimate purpose of understanding the patterns of alcohol consumption and its effects on cardiovascular health and mortality of older people in more than 20 countries around the world. Dr. Calvo has received awards from the American Public Health Association, the American Sociological Association, the Gerontological Society of America, and the Retirement Research Foundation.
