Short Bio:

I obtained my MD in Tehran, Iran, subsequently gaining clinical and research experience before my move to Canada, where I undertook post-doctoral training at the Vancouver Prostate Centre receiving my PhD in 2010. I completed a General Pathology residency program at UBC, achieving FRCPC certification in 2015. I then pursued a one-year Urological pathology fellowship at the Weill Cornell Medicine in New York, returning in July 2016 to be appointed as a consultant pathologist at the BC Cancer Agency, a position I held for 18 months. I also had the privilege to work in Kelowna General Hospital until my recruitment to Richmond Hospital.

In addition to my interest in GU, I also have special interest in Breast pathology. My current goals are to enhance communication between pathologists and clinicians, and to establish research clinical collaborations for patient care.
