He is principal investigator in two multicenter research trials for the implementation of different machine perfusion devices for organ preservation in liver transplantation. He has been invited to present at national and international conferences, and has contributed to more than 60 articles in peer-reviewed journals, as well as book chapters and many abstracts. He has also reviewed work for several journals including American Journal of Transplantation, Liver Transplantation and BMC Cancer.
