He received his Post-doctoral training and research expertise in Nutrition and Cancer at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg Canada; the American Health Foundation Cancer Centre, Valhalla, New York, USA; the German Cancer Research Centre in Heidelberg, Germany; and University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. He is currently a Research Scientist in the Federal  Food  Regulatory  Setting  (Bureau of Chemical  Safety,  Health  Canada).  He provides toxicological research expertise related  to carcinogenesis and co-carcinogenesis of foods and food constituents, including those that are classified as additives, contaminants, process-induced compounds and packaging material-migrating chemicals. The main goal of his research is to provide hazard characterization of food-borne chemicals, using both conventional OECD testing guidelines and models of diseases (specifical cancer), for supporting regulatory chemical risk management processes. He is also interested in the biology of precancerous lesions of the colon and their use as a surrogate biomarker in evaluating foods and drugs. He is a recipient of the VVE Henderson Award (Society of Toxicology of Canada; 2010) and the International ToxScholar Outreach Award (Society of Toxicology, USA; 2016).
