He is adjunct Clinical Professor of Primary Health Care at the University of Western Australia and Notre Dame University and an active specialist general practitioner.  He is the clinical lead of the research group CHASM (The Collaborative for Health Care Analysis and Statistical Modelling) – providing high-level analysis and statistical modelling to inform WA Health clinical service planning and service evaluation.

In the last 2 years the clinics have assessed over 4000 patients who have exhausted conventional therapy, for prescribed regulated medicinal cannabis for multiple clinical conditions. By tracking important clinical changes using a bespoke validated digital health platform, Emyria has created an ethical source of unique data covering a wide variety of patients, products and formulations. Analysis of these data reveal unique product and dose-response insights for certain patient populations and conditions.
