As a neuropathologist, my work involves studying tissue samples of the brain and spinal cord taken during surgery in order to diagnose and classify tumors. Making a precise diagnosis requires using observations we make at the microscope, as well as information from molecular genetic assessments. This process is critical for predicting how a tumor is likely to behave and helps to guide treatment decisions.

I am also a molecular genetic pathologist and work alongside my colleagues in the diagnostic molecular pathology lab to detect genetic changes in cancer.

My research interests include searching for recurrent molecular alterations in difficult to classify primary brain tumors. We are specifically looking for those with possible diagnostic, therapeutic, or prognostic significance. I am proud to collaborate with the dedicated scientists and clinicians of the Brain Tumor Center at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Our goal is to discover and develop effective brain tumor therapies.
