About Me

I am a diagnostic radiologist with sub-specialty training in neuroradiology, including imaging of brain, spine, and head and neck disease. My practice involves the interpretation of CT and MRI scans. I have a particular interest in head and neck oncology;  and as a member of the Head and Neck Oncology Disease Management Team, I interact with surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and other professionals in therapeutic decision making for patients with head and neck cancer. I also have particular expertise in image-guided biopsy of spine and head and neck tumors.

I lecture nationally and internationally and am also involved in print and web-based educational projects for radiologists. My research interests include investigation of functional imaging (PET scans, functional MRI, and Dynamic Contrast Enhanced MRI) for the diagnosis, treatment, and surveillance of neurologic and head and neck disease.

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. Medicare and New York State Medicaid also provide benefits for care at MSK.
