He has been successful in obtaining grants from Cancer Council and Cancer Australia to further investigate the utility of novel endoscopic imaging techniques in the detection of dysplasia and early cancer in Barrett’s Oesophagus and more recently work on the investigation of the utility of serum biomarkers for colon cancer was selected as the top 10 best medical research initiatives in the country by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC, Australia).

He is actively involved in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students. Further testament to this resulted in Teaching Awards at the Lyell McEwin Hospital, Australia in 2008 and 2009. He is also frequently invited to conduct basic and advanced endoscopy workshops for both trainees and Consultants across the country and overseas having participated in more than 100 workshops/symposiums.

He is a committee member of the Standards of Practice and Publications committee with the World Endoscopy Organisation (WEO). He was a Councillor with the Gastroenterological Endoscopic Society of Australia (GESA) and past chair of the Australian Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Association (AGEA).
