Dr. Andrew Patterson joins us from the University of British Columbia on July 15, 2015, where he completed his Ph.D. in Sociology. His research compares the impact of political regimes on population health. He finds a surprisingly strong relationship between democratic governance and population health. As part of his post-doctoral research, he intends to compare more regime types, further exploring the relationship between democracy, economic prosperity and health, attempting to discern why neither systems of accountability for leaders’ decisions nor social inequalities act as mediators. He is very keen to analyse causes and explanations of the relationship of governance to population health, relying on an ecological perspective.

Dr. Germain Boco joined the Prentice Institute in January 2012, as a Research Analyst. His Ph.D. is in Demography from the Université de Montréal in April 2011. His Ph.D. was a comparative study of individual and community level effects on child mortality in sub-Saharan African countries. He will be working closely with Dr. McDaniel on her CRC research program, doing data analysis, providing analytic methods for research projects, developing international comparative data analysis, and, in future, possibly offering training opportunities for Prentice researchers in longitudinal and comparative research methods.
