About Me

As a pathologist at Duke Hospital, I examine biopsies and surgical specimens removed from Duke patients. Internists, surgeons, and oncologists rely on these pathology reports to provide appropriate treatment options. My areas of expertise include general gastroenterology as well as esophagus, stomach, colon, liver, and pancreatic tumors. As the Director of the Biospecimen Repository & Processing Core, I am excited to give patients the option to safely donate excess portions of their surgical specimens for use in research. Our lab, which meets the highest national standards for safety and quality, partners with faculty and investigators throughout the health system to facilitate biomedical research projects. Working at the intersection of patient care and biomedical research is the best part of my career. Our team has helped many patients and their families feel they are creating something good from their challenging medical diagnosis.
