About Me

I am a neuro-oncologist who cares for patients with brain tumors and neurologic complications of cancer. I coordinate a multidisciplinary team of neurosurgeons and radiation oncologists who collaborate to provide the highest quality treatment for patients with gliomas and glioblastomas, primary central nervous system lymphomas (brain and spinal cord), ependymomas, and other types of brain tumors. With the support of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Brain Tumor Center, I also conduct research in an effort to develop innovative, more effective treatments for these diseases. I am currently leading several clinical trials aiming to improve patients’ survival and quality of life, including studies of new targeted therapies, treatments targeting tumor blood vessels (angiogenesis), cancer stem cells and immunotherapy.

Clinical Trials

Research is integral to our mission at Memorial Sloan Kettering, and clinical trials help us discover better forms of patient care and treatment. For you, this could mean access to a new therapy or therapy combination. Click to see a list of the trials I’m currently leading.


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.
