My main research focus is translational surgical oncology, mainly focusing on strategies to improve response to perioperative systemic chemotherapy as well as immunotherapy in patients with metastatic disease who are eligible for curative cancer surgery (colorectal, appendiceal, gastric, ovarian and primary peritoneal surface malignancies).
My clinical research focuses on the improvement of surgical therapy for patients with peritoneal surface malignancies as well as minimally invasive and robotic surgery in patients with colorectal cancer.
