Simon is a National Health and Medical Research Council fellow in the Department of Infectious Diseases at the Doherty Institute. He is based at the UNFPA Asia Pacific Office in Bangkok, Thailand.
He is the lead of the Indigenous Health cross-cutting discipline at the Doherty Institute and produced the Indigenous research report. He also chairs the annual Indigenous Health research seminar. Simon led a four-year community-based trial that successfully tripled sexually transmitted infection testing which identified double the number of asymptomatic infections among young Aboriginal people living in small towns. This enabled the Aboriginal Medical Services to provide treatment early and prevent poor reproductive health outcomes.
