I am a board-certified medical oncologist who specializes in caring for people with plasma cell cancers. These include multiple myeloma, asymptomatic (smoldering) multiple myeloma, and monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS).

As a doctor, my goal is to guide patients as we consider options for their care including the full array of clinical trials offered at MSK. My philosophy is to consider not only the details of my patients’ disease but also their priorities and quality of life, so that I can provide the right treatments for them.

My research is aimed at bringing chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy to people with multiple myeloma. My goal is to move the field of CAR T cell therapy forward so that we can provide the safest, most effective cellular therapy options for our patients. Several clinical trials of CAR T cell therapy for patients with relapsed myeloma stemming from my laboratory research have been opened and are currently enrolling patients.


Doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering work as teams, with specialists from all different areas. This allows us to consider all your needs together, and to give you the best possible care.
