Research and Clinical Interests

My primary clinical focus has been working in the FNA biopsy clinic, particularly with incorporating ultrasound guidance for FNA biopsy at UCSF. I also sign-out general cytopathology and general breast pathology cases. I present at the weekly Breast Tumor Board conference. I am working to develop clinical applications for molecular diagnostics in the FNA setting.
