His current research in his fellowship continues his interest in the biochemistry of stone formation and the prevention of infected stone related shock. He has established standardized algorithms for prophylaxis, modified and enhanced the safety features of ureteroscopic techniques, and elucidated the pathophysiology of upper urinary tract urothelial carcinomas (UUT-UC). His work was selected for national and international presentation including conferences on Laparo-Endoscopic Single Site (LESS) Surgery which was published in peer reviewed journals.
