About Me

I am a board-certified medical oncologist who works as part of a multidisciplinary team to treat patients with prostate cancer and other genitourinary malignancies. My primary focus is on the medical treatment of men with advanced or high-risk prostate cancer. In addition to using standard therapies, I develop and design clinical trials testing new agents directed at androgen receptor signaling and other molecular pathways of disease progression.
