My Research Activities

I am interested in all aspects of clinical research in gynaecological oncology. I am currently involved with study of quality of life in women diagnosed and treated for gynaecological cancer; sentinel node detection in gynaecological cancers and neoadjuvant chemotherapy in treatment of cervical cancer.
