Bernard qualified in medicine in France and worked as a clinician before entering epidemiological research. He completed an MSc in Epidemiology in Paris and a PhD in Epidemiology at the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), Lyon, France. Before joining the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in July 2002, he spent three years as a postdoctoral fellow in Montréal (Canada), where he mainly worked on cancer risks associated with occupational and environmental exposures, and on developments in methodology.

His current research is centred on inequalities in cancer care and cancer outcomes. He is leading a wide range of projects to quantify, describe and explain these inequalities by socio-economic group, geographic area and ethnicity, as well as extending the methodology and analytic tools for time-to-event data, in collaboration with research partners in the UK and around the world.

He is involved in various face-to-face courses at the School and supervises several doctoral students.
