Albert Esteve is a demographer. He is currently the Director of the Center for Demographic Studies (Barcelona) and an assistant professor in the Department of Geography at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). He completed his undergraduate studies in Geography and has a PhD in Demography from the UAB.

His research interests lie in the area of family and household demography, including topics like marriage, cohabitation, assortative mating and marriage markets. He has focused on the implications of structural changes on the marriage markets (e.g. gender gap reversal in education, the expansion of college education, or international migration) and on family dynamics in various regions of the world, with a focus in Latin America. Most of his work is cross-national and makes intensive use of census and survey microdata. He spent three years at the Minnesota Population Center actively participating in the first release of International census microdata within the IPUMS project. He has been Marie Curie Fellow at the Institute national d’études démographiques, INED (Paris) and Visiting Fellow at Princeton University. His research has been published in the most prestigious demographic journals and funded competitively by European, Spanish and Catalan research agencies, including the European Research Council.
