About me


My name is Olivier Bernard.

I’m from Montreal, Canada.

I’m a licensed pharmacist and I’ve been practicing since 2004*.

I also have a Master’s degree in molecular genetics.

I’ve worked in the pharma industry for a couple of years.

I’m passionate about science communication.

I’m fascinated by scientific and medical myths.

I frequently speak in the media about healthcare.

I write & host a TV documentary series on scientific skepticism, as well as an award-winning investigative podcast, and I wrote four popular science books, but these not available in English (yet).

I occasionally get involved in politics and scientific activism.

I have received the 2019 John Maddox Prize for my work in the defense of science.

My artistic skills are limited, but I still managed to draw everything on this website.

My English is good but not perfect, so please bear with me.

Right now, I’d rather be hiking.
