He has contributed to the training of more than 30 Thoracic Physicians now in practice. He has a diverse range of research interests including respiratory physiology, asthma and lung cancer but also a particular focus on improvement in public health, and has made a notable contributions in the area of Tobacco Control and better care of patients with lung cancer.  He chairs the Global Lung Cancer Coalition and was instrumental in the creation of the Kylie Johnson Lung Cancer Network, an important component of the patient support activities of the Lung Foundation, and encouraged and supported the establishment of the Australia and New Zealand Lung Cancer Nurses Forum. His primary role within Macquarie Respiratory and Sleep is with the Lung Function Laboratory.
