Academic Rank:
Clinical Associate Professor, UBC
Clinical Molecular Geneticist, BC Cancer Agency
Short Bio:


My clinical and research interests lie in the fields of cancer genetics and bioinformatics and where they intersect.  I have particular interest in the application of second-generation sequencing for clinical diagnostic and predictive testing.  My primary areas of focus are 1) the development of sequence-based testing for genes associated with hereditary cancers and 2) biomarker testing and discovery in non-small cell lung cancers.
