Anatomic and Clinical Pathology Board-Certified pathologist with a specialization in breast pathology. I completed pathology residency training and general surgical pathology fellowship training at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, and breast pathology fellowship training at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. I joined the Department of Pathology at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in July, 2013 and became Breast Division Director in August 2015. My research interests include the molecular and genetic mechanisms of breast cancer development, progression, and response to treatment, as well as applications of advanced digital imaging. As a breast pathologist, I perform microscopic examinations of breast biopsies and surgical specimens and render diagnoses that help guide treatment decisions for our patients. I am proud to be part of the multidisciplinary team providing breast cancer patients with comprehensive and coordinated care.
