About Me

Who I am


My name is Dr Simon Bishop and I'm a teaching and research academic with an interest in the role of culture on individual health behaviours. I am currently based at Bangor University in the United Kingdom, where I lead a Professional Doctorate in Public Health. My research interests focus on global health issues and on the drivers underpinning decision-making where voluntary risk-taking plays a part in exposure to harm, with the bulk of my research taking place in Asia.


In addition to my interests in health I also have a background in food security and the environment, and I retain an interest in the links between food production, nutrition and health across the world.


I am a Churchill Fellow, a Fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA).
