Board Certifications

Internal Medicine, Medical Oncology

I am a board-certified medical oncologist who specializes in caring for people with hepatobiliary, colorectal, pancreatic, and other gastrointestinal cancers. As a member of the MSK Immunotherapeutics Clinic and the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy, I am involved in the range of cancer immunotherapy research from basic science to clinical trials.

With support from the Tri-Institutional Therapeutics Discovery Institute and the MSK Technology Development Fund, my work is largely focused on developing next-generation immunotherapy drugs. By targeting fundamental mechanisms of immune tolerance, these drugs are designed to treat diverse advanced cancers including colon cancer, prostate cancer, liver cancer, and breast cancer
