Clinical Expertise

My main clinical interest is the diagnosis of neoplastic and non-neoplastic lung disease utilizing histology while considering radiographic findings and the clinical seting. I also practice cytopathology, reviewing mostly thyroid, pancreas and lung aspirates as well as non-gynecologic exfoliative cytology.

Research Interests

Currently, I am participating in various collaborative research efforts in the area of idiopathic and connective tissue disease-related fibrosing lung diseases.
