Dr. Simon Bacon’s research deals with the impact of health behaviours and lifestyle (e.g., physical activity, diet, weight management, stress) on chronic diseases (e.g., obesity, cardiovascular disease, chronic lung disease, and COVID-19). This work uses multiple methodologies, including epidemiological, psychophysiological, evidence synthesis, and behavioural intervention development and testing designs, leveraging patient-oriented research and integrated knowledge translation approaches. Dr. Bacon is the CIHR SPOR Mentoring Chair in Innovative, Patient-Oriented, Behavioural Clinical Trials, the FRQS co-Chair in Artificial Intelligence and Digital Health for Health Behaviour Change, and the co-Director of the Montreal Behavioural Medicine Centre (www.mbmc-cmcm.ca).
