I am a pathologist specializing in cytopathology and surgical pathology. I diagnose diseases through integrating clinical history and studying patient samples under the microscope. As a cytopathologist, I perform fine needle aspiration biopsies in our clinic. I serve as Chief of the Head and Neck Service, and Director of the Duke Pathology Communications Group.
My research interests focus on the pathology of the head and neck and endocrine systems, with particular interest in thyroid nodules and neoplasia, and ultrasound-guided FNA. I work with a multidisciplinary team to improve our understanding of disease. I also focus on novel applications of social media for physicians and medical education.
