About Me

What I Do at MSK
  • Assistant Attending Physician
Get To Know Me

I am a medical oncologist who cares for people who have been admitted to Memorial Hospital to be treated for leukemia. I am also a member of MSK’s Cellular Therapeutics Center. We are working to develop the next generation of a promising type of immunotherapy called CAR T cell therapy.

For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by the workings of cells and the immune system. These two interests converged on oncology, allowing me to focus on not only the underlying disease, but on ways to target and eradicate it through the use of immunotherapy.

When patients are in the hospital, they are often concerned about getting the most appropriate therapy for their unique disease. I try to alleviate these concerns by involving my patients in the treatment planning process and explaining the reasoning behind each approach.

After I meet with patients and their families, it’s my goal that they feel hopeful that we will help them feel better. This can mean treating their disease to cure it, and also alleviating symptoms to improve their quality of life.

My Role at MSK

A leukemia specialist is a doctor with special training in diagnosing and treating leukemia.

A cellular therapy specialist is a doctor with special training in using cell therapies to treat health conditions such as cancer. Therapies can include chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy.
