Radiation Oncology

I am a radiation oncologist who specializes in caring for people with cancers of the chest, known as thoracic cancers. These include lung cancer, mesothelioma, and thymoma. I have expertise in stereotactic and proton-beam radiation therapies. I treat patients at Memorial Sloan Kettering Basking Ridge.

I grew up in northern New Jersey and am thrilled to be part of a community that has already given me so much. I love working with inspired people who are motivated to help others and advance the future of cancer care.

I find it gratifying to see patients’ lives and outlooks change once they gain more knowledge about their disease. For some, the fear of the unknown is scarier than a diagnosis. I strive to relieve my patients’ uncertainties and guide them through their care. In addition, my passions for technology and research make the rapidly evolving field of radiation oncology a great fit for me.

My goal is to maximize quality of life for my patients. My current research and clinical interests involve applying advanced technologies to more precisely target the primary tumor and avoid healthy tissue.

In my spare time, I love running, cooking, traveling, and spending time with my family. 

I strive to relieve my patients’ uncertainties and guide them through their care.
