Associate Professor of Surgery


My research focuses on three areas. One is the development of more effective and entirely novel treatments for melanoma. I have a special interest in immunotherapy, novel targeted molecular therapies, and regional chemotherapy for advanced melanoma of the arm or leg. Another area of interest is palliative surgery for cancer with an emphasis on understanding the optimal role and application of this type of surgery in the care of advanced malignancy. A third area of interest is quality and patient safety with an emphasis on communication and work culture.
