I am a Clinical Professor of Pathology and Director of the Gastrointestinal and Liver Pathology at University of California – Irvine. I attended medical school in India and also did a pathology residency in Bombay, India. This was followed by a second pathology (AP/CP) pathology residency as well as a general surgical pathology fellowship at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY. I then did a Gastrointestinal and Hepatobiliary Pathology fellowship at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN. After finishing this fellowship in 2007, I was recruited at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN as a faculty and stayed on staff for the next 11 years, rising to the rank of Associate Professor of Pathology. While at Mayo Clinic, I practiced gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary pathology at one of the busiest and demanding GI/liver pathology practices in the country, with more than 25,000 in-house GI/liver biopsies annually and more than 10,000 extramural GI/liver consultation cases each year. My clinical and translational research interests include liver tumors, pancreatic cancers, celiac disease, inflammatory diseases of the GI tract and colon cancers. I have published more than 60 peer-reviewed articles, authored 10 book chapters in GI and liver pathology. I have also co-edited 2 textbooks, one each in GI pathology and liver pathology. I am also actively involved in teaching of residents and fellows. In 2020, I was awarded the John Budd Golden Microscope Teaching Award for the Outstanding Pathology Resident Teacher at University of California, Irvine. Currently I work in a multidisciplinary environment at University of California – Irvine, and regularly interact with gastroenterologists, hepatologists, as well as colorectal and hepatopancreatibiliary surgeons.
