I completed my residency training at the Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital, affiliated with Harvard Medical School in Boston, and subsequently completed my body MRI fellowship at Stanford University. 

Prior to my clinical training, I completed a research fellowship with the Stroke Service at Massachusetts General Hospital, and a research fellowship with the Thoracic Imaging Research Group at UCLA.

Before joining MSK, I was an assistant professor of radiology and attending radiologist in the Body Imaging Service at the University of Arizona in Tucson, where I served for three years as the lead clinician for gynecology imaging. At MSK, I am a member of the Department of Radiology’s Body Imaging Service. My clinical experience is in cross-sectional imaging (MRI, CT and ultrasound), with a specific interest in the use of MRI for tumor diagnosis and staging in the chest, abdomen, and pelvis. 

I am a member of the colorectal Disease Management Team, working with our oncologists and surgeons in a multidisciplinary environment to help with the diagnosis and treatment of oncology patients. My clinical and research efforts focus on the diagnosis and staging of colorectal cancer and other gastrointestinal malignancies, as well as on radiomics and radiogenomics in these tumors.

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