"My research interests focus primarily on clinical follow-up studies of implant treatment involving atrophic alveolar bone, aesthetic implant dentistry, implant loading protocols, etc., basic studies of implant surface modifications and animal studies intended to improve the outcomes of dental implants. I am an active member of European Association of Osseointegration (EAO) and delivered a few speeches at the EAO meeting. Currently, I am leading or involved in several multicenter clinical trials. I have published more than 80 papers in peer-reviewed journals as the first or corresponding author including Clinical Oral Implants Research, Clinical Implant Dentistry and Related Research and Journal of Clinical Periodontology, and was invited for a Pubcast at the SciVee website. I have also authored and co-authored several books in this field and acted as editor in chief of the English textbook in implant dentistry for postgraduate students."
