My research interests relate to clinical and translational questions in head and neck oncology and head and neck reconstruction. I am interested in the study of head and neck cancer as well as outcomes research to improve patient selection and prediction of response to therapy. I spent an extra year after residency as a fellow in head and neck surgical oncology and microvascular reconstruction, putting me in an ideal situation to contribute to team science in the study of head and neck cancer.
