As an Oral Medicine Specialist, I have a special interest in oral diseases with systemic complications and systemic diseases with oral manifestations.

My main research interest is in oral cancer, particularly developing prognostic or predictive molecular markers that can be used for assessment of the severity of the disease, prognosis and therapy.
