I am a medical oncologist dedicated to the care of women with gynecologic malignancies. I have a special interest in caring for people with inherited risk of cancer. As part of a multidisciplinary team including radiation oncologists and surgeons, I ensure optimal therapy for each patient given their unique needs. We offer patients the opportunity to take part in innovative clinical trials that test new ways to manage cancers in addition to standard care options. I also have a separate genetics clinic where I provide clinical counseling and genetic testing for people who may have an inherited predisposition to gynecologic or other cancers. My interest in inherited cancers extends to my research and I am studying ways we can understand, prevent, and treat these cancers.

My research interests also include the development of new treatments for ovarian cancer and better mechanisms to tell if existing therapies are working. We are making a strong effort to target appropriate therapies for individual patients by performing molecular profiling of tumors, when appropriate, as part of an institutional research protocol.


Doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering work as teams, with specialists from all different areas. This allows us to consider all your needs together, and to give you the best possible care.
