I am a medical oncologist who specializes in the treatment of lung cancer. I work with a team of experts including surgeons, radiation oncologists, pathologists, and nurses. Our goal is to provide the best possible care and support for patients and their families.

As a member of the Thoracic Oncology Service, my research is focused on developing new treatments for lung cancer. I have a particular interest in studying ways to target molecular changes in patients' tumors with new medicines.

I also specialize in early-phase clinical trials and am a member of our Developmental Therapeutics group. Our aim is to bring new drugs to patients with all types of cancer, particularly those for whom standard treatments have been exhausted.

I speak English, Spanish, and Filipino.
