Board Certifications


I am a radiologist with subspecialty training in body MRI. I am privileged to serve people with cancer who come to MSK for their care.

My responsibilities involve reading MR, CT, and ultrasound images. I have an interest in MRI for diagnosing and staging tumors in the chest, abdomen, and pelvis. People with cancer often require timely and accurate imaging. I am committed to providing this for each person.

As a member of the Colorectal Disease Management Team, I work with many oncologists and surgeons. Together, we diagnose, stage, and treat people with colorectal cancer. My colleagues and I also research how to improve how we diagnose and treat cancer.

My clinical work is driven by advanced imaging diagnostics and is founded upon translational research and education. By doing translational research, what we discover in research is ultimately put into practice. I do research on a full array of disease processes. As such, I am a highly driven clinician-scientist. My current research interests are radiomics and radiogenomics in rectal cancer. This involves using advanced computer software to discover imaging features in MRI, not visible to the human eye, that correlate with gene expression. This information can be incredibly useful for assessing risk and tailoring treatment.

I am very involved in medical education. I serve as Associate Training Program Director for the oncology imaging fellowship in the Department of Radiology. I was awarded the 2017 Department of Radiology Teaching Excellence Award for teaching and mentorship, which have been a passion of mine throughout my career.
