Profile

I am a clinical histopathologist specialising in dermatopathology and with a research interest in tissue biomarkers for cutaneous melanoma. My professional goal is to combine my clinical and research skills to develop a prognostic biomarker that will improve patient care worldwide for melanoma patients.

Research

I investigate tissue biomarkers for malignant melanoma a type of skin cancer
