Gabe Murchison, Ph.D., M.P.H.

  • Postdoctoral Fellow, CIRA


Dr. Gabe Murchison (he/him) is a postdoctoral fellow in CIRA's Yale AIDS Prevention Training Program (Y-APT). His research addresses sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and substance use among adolescents and young adults. A primary goal of his work is to identify and intervene on the multiple pathways by which anti-LGBTQ stigma, in combination with racism, sexism, and ableism, may contribute to disparities in adolescent/young adult interpersonal violence victimization and problematic substance use. Methodologically, he is interested in applying models that address complex causal scenarios (e.g., intermediate confounding) to interpersonal violence and health disparities research.

Dr. Murchison received a PhD in Population Health Sciences from the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health and an MPH in Social & Behavioral Sciences from the Yale School of Public Health. He previously worked for a national LGBTQ advocacy organization, where he managed survey research projects and incorporated research findings into public education efforts, with a focus on issues affecting LGBTQ youth.
