He commenced specialist training in Wellington and completed this at the Peter MacCallum in Melbourne, Australia.  He held a specialist appointment there before joining the radiation oncology department at the Alfred.

He has published more than a hundred papers in peer-reviewed journals, and has been awarded millions of dollars in research grants.
