About Me

I am a neuro-oncologist who cares for patients with brain tumors and neurologic complications of cancer including metastasis. I have a special interest in leptomeningeal metastasis and am currently conducting basic research to understand the molecular mechanisms responsible for this condition.

Clinical Trials

As home to one of the world’s top cancer research centers, Memorial Sloan Kettering is typically involved in more than 900 clinical trials at a given time. Currently, clinical trials focused on the conditions I treat are enrolling new patients.

Most major health insurers offer plans that include MSK as one of their in-network providers. If MSK is in-network, it means all our doctors are too. Medicaid and New York State Medicare also provide benefits for care at MSK.
