While he was a practicing radiographer, he garnered experience in various imaging modalities such as Conventional Radiography, Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Theatre Radiography and Sonography. This wealth of experience has been of immense benefit in practical sessions with the students on clinical posting at the University Teaching Hospital. Courses taught include but not limited to Radiation Physics, Care of Patient, Radiographic Anatomy, Pathology, Oncology and Radiotherapy, Radiographic Technique, Research Methods, Computed Tomography, Digital Imaging, Radiographic Equipment, Photography etc. He is also involved in administering oral examinations to students from 300 level up to 500 level. His chosen field in Radiography and Medical Imaging is Radiation Protection and Safety. Fundamental to radiation protection is the avoidance or reduction of dose using the simple protective measures of time, distance and shielding. The duration of exposure should be limited to that necessary, the distance from the source of radiation should be maximised, and the source shielded wherever possible. Majority of his research is into ways whereby radiation dose during radiologic examinations can be kept at the barest minimum without compromising on the quality of the final image produced. Also, his research area delves into occupational exposure to radiation and the levels to which radiation workers should be exposed to. The environment is not left out as it is a major contributor to human existence and he is currently working on background radiation, groundwater pollution, rocks, building materials etc and ways to reduce the effect of various forms of ionizing radiation from affecting the human population
