Thierry Gagné, PhD



I am a social epidemiologist using large public surveys to answer questions relevant to population health.

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. 

My work has focussed on cigarette smoking and mental health, and uses a wide range of datasets across Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
