He has a keen interest in research in HPB disease having been the lead local radiologist in the STOPHCC, EPOCH, and SIRRCCA trials for radio enbolisation (SIRT) in liver cancers.

As a trustee for LCSA originally and now BRIGHT he is keen to raise the profile of locoregional and image guided therapies in HPB cancers, both in their availability and and their benefits to patient care. He has been a driving force in the recent Nanoknife appeal for ablation of irresectable liver and pancreatic cancer, in order to offer this group of patients treatment options previously unavailable within our cancer Network.
