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 health behaviours and outcomes. I am currently based at Bangor University in the United Kingdom, where I lead a Professional Doctorate in Public Health. My research interests encompass all aspects of health, but currently I am focusing on the drivers that underpin decision-making where voluntary risk-taking plays a part in exposure to harm.

In addition to my interests in health I also have a background in agriculture, 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).
