I am a hematologic oncologist who cares for people with all types of lymphoma. I have special expertise in the development of new treatments for these conditions through clinical trials research.

During my training, I was fascinated by cancer biology and was inspired by the pursuit of new approaches that hold promise for improved outcomes and a better quality of life for people with blood cancers. I am currently the principal investigator of several clinical trials evaluating new lymphoma treatments, either as single agents or in combination with immunotherapy.

Patients often ask me if their disease is treatable. For most people, the answer is yes, thanks to the explosion of promising new targeted treatments, immunotherapies, and supportive care options that we have seen in recent years. I am fortunate to be part of a team that has led to some of these breakthroughs.

I believe that every person in my care deserves my full attention and dedication so that they feel supported and cared for during a difficult time in their lives. My goal is to convey a sense of hope and confidence to ease the anxiety that comes with a diagnosis of lymphoma.

Outside of work I enjoy playing the piano, being outdoors with my dog, and attending cultural events.
