Research Interests

Over the past few years I have directed my research focus towards immunophenotyping and genetic profiling of B-cell lymphomas. Several of my projects relate to morphologic and immunophenotypic characterization of immunodeficiency-associated B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders as well as genetic alterations in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma that predict response to immuno-chemotherapy.
