      Collapse Overview
      I am a diagnostic surgical pathologist with a focus on women's cancer, including gynecologic cancers (ovary, uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes, peritoneum, vagina, vulva) and breast cancers. I provide diagnostic services to the clinics and operating rooms at Moffitt Hospital and Mt Zion Cancer Center and collaborate clinically with colleagues in the Gynecologic Oncology division and Breast Care Center.

      My clinical research focuses on improving predictive and prognostic understanding of gynecologic and breast cancers using pathologic variables, as well as improving pathologic differential diagnosis. Currently my investigations are centered on pathology of inherited ovarian and fallopian tube cancers.

      I enjoy collaborative investigations not only with clinical colleagues but also with basic scientists and currently provide diagnostic services for a variety of scientists at UCSF in the area of women's cancers.
