    Research Overview

  • My major area of research interest includes neuroendocrine, gastrointestinal and pancreatobiliary tumors. I mentor residents, fellows, and junior faculty in undertaking academic activities, which have resulted in presentations at various national/international pathology meetings and publications in top tier pathology journals. Apart from my own research interest, which is largely clinical and translational based, I like to participate in interdisciplinary collaborative research endeavors.
  • Teaching Overview

  • I teach residents and fellows on a daily basis. My teaching activities range from individual education during daily sign-out of cases to group sessions including slide conferences and lectures. I have been honored for my contributions to the residents education and training. In 2016, I was awarded the Golden Apple Award in appreciation for "Excellence in Teaching and Outstanding Contributions to Medical Education.
