My main research focus is in pancreatic cancer, specifically looking for biomarkers for the diagnosis and prognosis of pancreatic tumours.
My clinical expertise is in Anatomic Pathology. I have a special interest in Gastrointestinal and Pancreatic tumors. My diagnostic surgical pathology work includes the provision of services in surgical pathology, as well as consultations to Juravinski Cancer Centre Patients for gastrointestinal, prostate, and urological cancers.
I am currently active within the Undergraduate Medical Program, the Pathology resident training program, and the Surgery resident training program, especially in the areas of breast, thyroid, and gastrointestinal pathology.
