I am a board-certified anatomic/clinical pathologist with subspecialty expertise in hematopathology. I diagnose diseases of the blood, the hematopoietic and lymphoid systems, thus guiding treatment and management decisions. I work very closely with my clinical colleagues in providing optimal patient care.

My research interests include leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, and the microenvironment of various hematological malignancies. I have a special interest in studying the biology of lymphomas and identifying the molecular basis of lymphomagenesis.
