Research Overview

  • Clinical interests include high dose-rate brachytherapy for gynecologic malignancies, the opportunity to personalize care of patients with endometrial carcinoma using biochemical pathways, and the collaboration between patient and physician in making clinical decisions. My leadership in medical facilities in rural counties allows me to provide underserved populations with the same level of technically sophisticated, multidisciplinary oncology care available on the campus of a comprehensive cancer center and provides opportunities for discerning how available technologies can be optimally utilized.
  • Teaching Overview

  • Academic interests include medical education and language; epistemology and ethics in the practice of medicine; the history of medicine; instruction of medical students in physical diagnosis and interviewing; the practice of medicine in wilderness and austere environments; and the interplay of technology and praxis in clinical encounters.
