Research Summary

I currently work with pediatric surgery on questions related to management and outcomes of children with papillary thyroid cancer using a retrospective database. Our group is part of the multi-institutional Child and Adolescent Thyroid Consortium, newly established in 2020. I have worked in collaboration with pediatric and endocrine surgery on clinical outcomes after definitive therapy for Graves disease in children and with endocrine pathology on molecular analysis of pediatric papillary thyroid carcinoma and correlation with clinical phenotypes and outcomes.
