Research Summary

Dr. Gareth Hagger-Johnson studies health behaviours and health inequalities at key transition periods in the life course (e.g. birth to early childhood, adolescence to early adulthood, midlife to early old age) having particular interests in prospective cohort studies and in the analysis of existing or routinely collected data. Gareth has worked across several disciplines (epidemiology, public health, psychology and statistics) with various collaborators, analysing data from the Lothian Birth Cohorts 1921/1936, the Longitudinal Study of Young People in England (LSYPE), Whitehall II and other cohort studies. He is particularly interested in how health behaviours, individual differences and socio-economic status (SES) influence health and disease over the life course. Gareth is currently investigating how data linkage errors occur in routinely collected data, and in developing better methods for understanding how they influence results.

Teaching Summary

Gareth delivers lectures on prospective cohort studies in epidemiology, principal components and factor analysis, and introductory health statistics.
