Jean-Marie Robine (born c. 1960) is a French demographer, gerontologist and author and journalist, who is best known as being the co-validator of the longevity of Jeanne Calment, the oldest verified supercentenarian of all time, with whom he collaborated.

Robine has been instrumental in organizing international efforts to study supercentenarians, through workshops held at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research and by founding the International Database on Longevity.[citation needed] Robine currently has the largest European supercentenarian dataset,[citation needed] and also collaborates with Japanese demographer Yasuhiko Saito.
