• Having retired from full time practice of surgical pathology and cytopathology in 2019, I now serve on a part time basis, concentrating primarily on pulmonary pathology as a regular participant in UAB's weekly Multidisciplinary Conference on Interstitial Lung Disease. I also see pulmonary cases in consultation with colleagues in the the surgical pathology and autopsy pathology sections of the Division of Anatomic Pathology, as well as providing occasional clinical backup in the section of cytopathology.

    Research Overview

  • Previously, I have participated in multiple collaborative projects with clinical and pathology departmental colleagues across a wide range of subjects. My current activity entails supporting pulmonary medicine colleagues in two funded projects dealing with fibrotic interstitial lung disease and environmental lung disease, respectively.
