Thierry Gagné, PhD

Banting Postdoctoral Fellow, University College London


My program of research aims to better understand 1) the role of the transition to adulthood in the development of health inequalities over the life-course and 2) changes in health inequalities among young adults across the most recent generations - Gen X's, Millennials, and Gen Z's - to have reached adulthood over time.

This research is done using a wide range of datasets across Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States. In the UK, these include the 1958 National Child Development Study, the 1970 British Cohort Study, the 1990-born Next Steps study, and the Understanding Society study.
