Radiation Oncology

I am a radiation oncologist specializing in the use of image-guided radiotherapy for the treatment of spine tumors. This treatment utilizes intensity-modulated radiotherapy and stereotactic radiosurgery techniques to deliver safe and effective radiation to tumors of the spine. I work closely with an interdisciplinary team of surgeons, medical physicists, radiologists, and nurses to provide high-quality, personalized treatment for each patient.

I am also the principal investigator of a laboratory that aims to understand the role of noncoding elements of the genome in cancer. We are just beginning to appreciate how these components of the genome are frequently mutated in cancer in ways that can significantly impact cellular physiology. We believe that characterizing the function of these elements will provide important insights into cancer development and behavior that may ultimately lead to improved cancer therapy.
