Thierry Gagné, PhD

Banting Postdoctoral Fellow, University College London


My program of research aims to better understand changes in wellbeing and health practices among young adults over time, the role of the transition to adulthood in the development of health inequalities over the life-course, and its increasing role among new generations facing poorer socio-economic opportunities over time.

This research is done using a wide range of datasets covering 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.

I am currently a Banting Research Fellow affiliated with the ESRC International Centre for Lifecourse Studies in Society and Health and Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at University College London (UCL). Since finishing my PhD in 2019, I have also been funded through fellowships from the Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR) and Fonds de Recherche du Québec - Santé (FRQS).
