Research and Clinical Interests

My clinical work is in diagnostic surgical pathology with an emphasis on liver and gastrointestinal disease. My current research focus is on markers expressed by hepatocellular carcinoma versus tumors metastatic to the liver. In the education realm, I oversee pathology curriculum for first- and second-year UCSF medical students, direct the Path 150.03 senior medical student elective, and advise the Pathology Student Interest Group.
