About Me

I first encountered cancer when I was eight years old and a close family member was diagnosed with the disease. During this frightening and uncertain time, my family and I relied on the medical oncologist for guidance and support. I was drawn to a career in medical oncology because I wanted to provide people with this same care and compassion.

In addition to pursuing a medical degree, I obtained a PhD in cancer biology because I wanted to thoroughly understand cancer from all angles. My extensive training enables me to keep up with the rapidly evolving science of oncology, and that, in turn, allows me to provide my patients with the most innovative cancer therapies.

At Perlmutter Cancer Center, I specialize in working with people who have prostate cancer. I am my patients’ best advocate—listening to their goals and needs and encouraging them along the way. The journey that I start with my patients is personal and powerful, and together, we navigate a way forward.

In my research, I aim to develop new diagnostics and therapeutics to better individualize prostate cancer treatment. I also seek to identify novel therapies that can reactivate the immune systems of people who have prostate cancer.
