Prior to joining the University of Ottawa, he worked for the Department of National Defence from 2003 to 2014, chiefly as a strategic analyst covering the Middle East. He was also a policy officer and an assistant to the deputy minister.

Both projects have been funded by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council. He is also the defence procurement co-director of the Canadian Defence and Security Network. In addition to his academic work, Lagassé serves as an advisor and consultant to the Canadian government.
