About Me

I am a board-certified pathologist with expertise in general cytopathology and in lung, pleura, and mediastinal tumors. I joined the faculty at Memorial Sloan Kettering in 2016, after completing my cytopathology and surgical pathology fellowships at the Mayo Clinic. As part of the Thoracic Disease Management Team, I work together with my colleagues from surgery, medical oncology, and radiation therapy to care for people with lung, pleural, and mediastinal tumors. My role is to establish accurate pathologic diagnosis, grading, staging and interpretation of predictive markers to guide treatment decisions.

Additionally, my educational responsibilities include working with fellows in oncologic pathology, thoracic pathology, and cytopathology. My current research interests include mesothelioma and immunotherapy for lung cancer.

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.
