Clinical Expertise

My personal areas of interest are pediatric dermatopathology and vascular lesions. As a pediatric pathologist, our field is broad and encompasses all organ systems as well as transplant, cytology and autopsy pathology with specific focus on tumors and diseases unique to the pediatric population.
