Professional background

I am the lead gynaepathologist at UCLH. I have been actively involved in collaborative research in gynae-oncology since 2007. Apart from my clinical pathology service, my research interest is in gynae-oncology, specifically identifying biomarkers for early detection and prognostication of gynaecological cancers.

I am the cervical screening provider lead (previously called hospital based programme co-ordinator) for cervical screening service at UCLH overseeing pathology, cytology and coloscopy services.

I offer diagnostic ,frozen section and pathology review services to the London cancer network and often receive second opinion referral cases from UK and abroad.

I have been the lead UCLH pathologist for a number of national and international trials, and have published in many journals including Nature Communications, Oncology, International Journal of Gynaecological Cancer, International Journal of Gynaecological Pathology and American Journal of Surgical Pathology.

I regularly supervise BSc, MSc and PhD students in their research projects. Apart from my diagnostic work, I help validate new immunohistochemical diagnostic and prognostic markers. During my subattical in USA, I worked for nine months at the University of Southern California in the molecular pathology laboratory, trying to better understand the molecular pathways for various gynaecological cancers.
