Short Bio:

I joined the Division of Hematopathology at Vancouver General Hospital in 2021 and completed additional training in cytogenetics and molecular genetics/genomics of hematologic malignancies in the VGH Cytogenomics Laboratory and the BC Cancer Genetics Laboratory. My primary research interests are in evaluation and classification of cancers of the blood and bone marrow by flow cytometry, cytogenetic, and molecular genetic testing, and implementation of new genomic technologies, such as optical genome mapping, for diagnosis of these diseases.
