Tumor-specific research interests are squamous cancer of head and neck, especially HPV-positive oropharynx cancer, nasopharyngeal cancer, small cell lung cancer, and squamous/basal skin cancer.
Treatment-specific settings of most interest are combination immune-oncology studies as well as their r integration into established regimens of chemotherapy and radiation/chemoradiation.
