Dr Simon Bishop

Honorary Lecturer


I have research interests in a variety of global health topics, particularly the role of social and cultural settings on health behaviours where voluntary risk-taking plays a part in negative health outcome. Currently, this involves exploring socio-cultural drivers of HIV transmission where knowledge and risk behaviours are at odds.

Teaching and Supervision

I currently lead the Professional Doctorate in Public Health, as well as teach across a number of undergraduate and postgraduate modules.

I supervise several postgraduate students with research interests in a broad range of global health topics.
