My primary research interest has been gastrointestinal endoscopy. Areas of specific investigation relate to endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) pancreaticobiliary disorders, and competence and training in endoscopic procedures.

Special areas of expertise are therapeutic endoscopy, therapeutic ERCP, and endoscopic ultrasound including pseudocyst drainage and necrosectomy.  I also have experience and expertise in training physicians in endoscopy and in assessing competence in endoscopy.

Key words: endoscopy training, endoscopy competence, ERCP, pancreatitis, quality improvement, complications, endoscopic ultrasound.
