Trained in South Africa and the USA in clinical and community psychology and mathematical statistics he has published over 270 indexed journal articles and co-authored three books.

During 2020 his modelling of trauma presentations was used to inform government policy regarding the imposition of a ban on liquor sales in South Africa which, together with other interventions, led to a dramatic decline in the burden from trauma experienced by hospitals and freed up resources needed to treat Covid-19 patients.
