He uses qualitative methodologies, particularly interviews and thematic analysis.

Anthony has been involved with The Australian Sociological Association as the Postgraduate Portfolio Leader (2020 - present), a member of the Postgraduate Sub-Committee (2019-2020), and as a co-convener of the Health thematic group (2019-present).

Anthony is a recipient of a UNSW Scientia Ph.D. scholarship. He was awarded an ASHM Early Career Award in 2020, and has received two research awards from the Faculty of Arts, Design & Architecture for his doctoral publications. Prior to commencing his doctoral study, he worked full-time from 2015-2018 as a Peer Educator at M Clinic, a sexual health clinic operated by the Western Australian AIDS Council (WAAC) in Perth, Western Australia. He received a double BA in Philosophy and in Theatre & Drama from Murdoch University in 2015, a BA with honours in English & Creative Writing from Murdoch University in 2016, and a Postgraduate Certificate in Human Rights with Distinction from Curtin University in 2018.

Anthony's doctoral research project, PrEP in Practice: Clinician Perspectives on Prescribing PrEP in Australia, is supervised by Martin Holt, Bridget Haire, and Christy Newman. The study investigates doctor and nurse perspectives of providing HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in New South Wales and Western Australia. Through multiple qualitative methods, the study seeks to explore how clinicians engage with new areas of practice, as well as understanding how clinicians negotiate science, clinical guidelines, uncertainty, risk, and the complex lives of patients.

Anthony has also worked across a number of other projects, including:
