His thesis work focused on the relationship between neighbourhood street connectivity and both physical activity and injury in Canadian youth. At OTRU, Graham is working on a number of projects, including the Ontario Tobacco Survey (a population representative longitudinal cohort study), and a Canadian Institutes of Health Research funded study on policy options to reduce tobacco retail availability. He is also involved with the Population Research Initiative on Mental Health and Addictions (PRIMHA).
