Dr. Monique Gagné is a postdoctoral research fellow with the Human Early Learning Partnership (HELP) at the University of British Columbia. Completing her PhD in educational psychology at UBC, her research has been largely dedicated to understanding how migration and adaptation experiences impact the development of new young Canadians (i.e., children and adolescents who come to Canada as immigrants and refugees). Building upon this work, she is currently investigating the unique ways in which our communities (namely, neighbourhoods and schools) can help young migrants to thrive as they make their way through the school system – academically, socially and emotionally. Methodologically, she has a passion for leveraging large, linked, population-based datasets in order to gain a greater understanding of how we are able to support the positive development of children and adolescents over time. Having worked for several years with Population Data BC, facilitating and consulting with researchers on a wide range of research studies in BC, she also has extensive knowledge and experience with utilizing and accessing linked, administrative and population-based data for research purposes.
