He has returned to Adelaide to combine clinical surgical practice with establishing a head and neck research program at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. He has an interest in outcomes-based research as well as the development and progression of minimally invasive head and neck surgery including transoral robotic surgery and novel sentinel lymph node biopsy techniques. He maintains the basic science interests developed during his PhD by investigating carcinogenesis topics such as understanding the role of tumour-associated microbiotia in head and neck cancer.
