I am a medical oncologist who specializes in blood and marrow transplantation for the treatment of blood cancers and related diseases. My clinical and research interests are focused on the use of cord blood as an alternative stem cell source for people who need an allogeneic transplant but don’t have a suitable donor. This is particularly relevant for people of non-European or mixed ancestry.

As a member of MSK’s Adult Bone Marrow Transplant Service and the MSK Cord Blood Transplant Program, my goal is to improve the outcomes of allogeneic and cord blood transplantation by investigating novel strategies to decrease transplant-related complications. In addition, I aim to investigate the unique biology of cord blood as compared to other graft sources.
