Simon is currently doing his bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Montreal. He is concomitantly doing an internship at the Pragmatic Health Ethics Research Unit where he is working on the ethical challenges raised by DIY artificial pancreases. He works jointly with the Metabolic Disease Research Unit directed by Dr Remi Rabasa-Lhoret who has developed two versions of the artificial pancreas. Simon’s interests in biomedical sciences and health care ethics has motivated him to pursue a master’s degree in clinical ethics under the supervision of Dr Eric Racine. In addition to his research, Simon is interested in science vulgarization and outreach to the general public by, for instance, hosting science workshops in primary schools and participating in artistic performances that promote science in a ludic way.
