His areas of research interest include offshore safety and risk engineering, inherent safety, risk management, and risk-based integrity assessment and management. He is actively involved with multinational oil and gas industries on the issue of safety and asset integrity. In 2006, he spent eight months as a risk and integrity expert with Lloyd’s Register, a risk management organization in UK. He also served as the Safety and Risk Advisor to Government of Newfoundland, Canada. He continues to serve as a subject matter expert to many organisations that include Lloyd’s Register EMEA, SBM Modco, Intecsea, Technip, and Qatar-gas. In 2008-10, he visited Qatar University and Qatar-gas LNG Company as the Process Safety and Risk Management Research Chair. In 2012-14 he served as a Visiting Professor of Offshore and Marine Engineering at Australian Maritime College (AMC), University of Tasmania, Australia where he led the development of offshore safety and risk engineering group and the initiative of global engagements with many international institutions. He is the recipient of President Outstanding Research Award of 2012-13 at Memorial University, CSChE National Award on Process Safety Management of 2014, President Outstanding Research Supervision Award of 2013-14 at Memorial University, and recently Society of Petroleum Engineer award for his contribution in Health, Safety and Risk Engineering. He has authored over 500 research articles in peer-reviewed journals and conferences on safety, risk and reliability engineering. He has authored five books on the subject area. He is the Editor for the Journal of Process Safety and Environmental Protection, Process Safety Progress, and ASME Part A (Risk and Uncertainty Analysis). He regularly offers training program/workshop on safety and risk engineering in different places including St John’s, Chennai, Dubai, Beijing, Aberdeen, Cape Town, Doha and Kuala Lumpur
