I am a Pathology resident at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville. This is my second residency in Pathology. My first residency was at the Army Hospital (Research and Referral), the apex flagship medical care centre for the armed forces of India.
My research work is focused in the areas of hematopathology, cytopathology and surgical pathology. I’ve published an award-winning first-author paper, relevant to developing countries, that proposes a significantly better and more affordable minimal screening panel for detecting acute leukemias. I have led several database curation efforts at Stanford University and the University of Virginia as part of the Cyto-Heme Interinstitutional Collaboration. These efforts have birthed numerous research manuscripts, including my first-author publication in Cancer Cytopathology. I recently studied gastroesophageal tumors with a loss of SMARCA4 expression and presented the study at USCAP.
In the near future, I plan to subspecialize in hematopathology and cytopathology.
