He was board certified by the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine (ACLAM) in 2013. He has a special interest in social housing of social species in the laboratory environment as well as refinements in experimental procedures through anesthetic, analgesic, and other veterinary care procedures. Additionally, he performs independent research in environmental contaminants and wildlife as sentinels for human health. The most notable project involves toxicant testing of lake sturgeon in the Genesee River with implications for human health and fish consumption in Rochester.

He supports research staff by providing veterinary services through the Division of Laboratory Animal Medicine including oversight of five licensed veterinary technician. DLAM services include acquisition and quarantine, diagnostic services, anesthetic and surgical support, and necropsy services.
