I am a neuro-oncologist who specializes in the care of patients with brain tumors and the neurologic complications of cancer. My team of physicians, nurses, research staff, and administrative support works with patients to deliver effective and compassionate specialized care in the treatment of both primary brain tumors (including glioblastomas, anaplastic gliomas, low-grade gliomas, ependymomas, and meningiomas) as well as brain metastases that have spread from other solid cancers the body.
I am currently conducting clinical trials and research for glioblastomas and other primary brain tumors in both the upfront and recurrent settings. My research also focuses on the treatment of patients with both benign and aggressive meningiomas, specifically investigating chemotherapy and molecularly targeted therapy when surgery and radiation are not an option.
I also serve as co-director of our Neuro-Oncology Fellowship Program and have a firm commitment to the education and training of our fellows and preparing them for a successful future career in neuro-oncology.
