Research and Clinical Interests

My clinical interest is mainly in breast pathology and cytopathology including exfoliative and fine needle aspiration cytology. I perform and interpret fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsies including ultrasound guided FNA. I am also actively involved in general pathology sign-out. My research interests include the areas of cytology and breast pathology.
