Research Abstract

I am a head and neck oncologic surgeon and translational head and neck cancer investigator. My clinical practice focuses on the care of patients with advanced head and neck cancer and cranial base neoplasms, with a particular emphasis on minimally invasive techniques including transoral robotic surgery and endoscopic cranial base surgery. My research focuses on translational head and neck cancer genomics and biomarker discovery for surgical and therapeutic interventions with the aim of improving precision head and neck oncology decision making. To do so, I study how different cellular alterations, and infection by human papilloma virus, effect the behavior of head and neck cancers.
