At CSL Behring he has been closely involved in the technical development and improvement of the immunoglobulin and albumin products manufactured at CSL Behring.

In addition he has an interest in exploiting  new techniques for analysing the physiochemical and biological properties of therapeutic proteins  – necessary for establishing product comparability following process change and addressing  attendant  regulatory requirements.

To achieve this, he maintains an active collaboration with external institutes as a means of accessing new technological and conceptual advances.

In addition to publishing in in his area of interest, he contributes to the activities of a number of national and international conference and industry organizations.

He was the chief editor and contributor to a seminal book in the plasma fractionation industry field titled “Production of Plasma Proteins for Therapeutic Use” Wiley (2013) and has recently contributed a chapter titled “ The purification of plasma proteins for therapeutic use” to Rossi’s Principles of Transfusion Medicine (5th Ed) Wiley Blackwell (2016)
