I am a medical oncologist who specializes in caring for people with leukemias and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). I also conduct leukemia research as part of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Center for Epigenetics Research. I continuously work to develop more-effective and more-personalized treatment approaches for people with leukemias and MDS.
I have dedicated my life to better understanding the complexities of genetic and epigenetic processes in cancer. After majoring in computer science at Princeton University, I studied the epigenetic changes involved in leukemic and myelodysplastic diseases during my MD/PhD at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City. I followed this with continued epigenetic work using “big data” analytics during my residency at Weill Cornell Medical Center and throughout my fellowship at MSK.
This unique background underlies my optimistic approach to the rapidly evolving, ever-more-individualized treatment regimens available for leukemias and MDS. I take pride in helping to advance the field, and continue to work with my patients to ensure they receive cutting-edge, personalized care that addresses their individual wants and needs.

As home to one of the world’s top cancer research centers, Memorial Sloan Kettering is typically involved in more than 900 clinical trials at a given time. Currently, clinical trials focused on the conditions I treat are enrolling new patients.

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.Learn more
