About Me


PhD Biomedical Engineering, University of North Carolina


University of California, San Francisco

I am a trained biochemist and engineer who specializes in the use of advanced magnetic resonance imaging approaches to study cancer metabolism. I am a faculty member in the Department of Radiology as well as Laboratory Head in the Sloan Kettering Institute’s Molecular Pharmacology Program.

My laboratory focuses on the development of novel biochemical approaches using multi-modality imaging with emphasis in a new field of MRI, hyperpolarized magnetic resonance. These directions include endogenous small molecules to study metabolism, platforms for their interrogation and mechanisms for cancer therapy. Our translational research is aimed at taking these approaches from the bench to bedside to not only conduct fundamental research, but to directly impact the human condition.


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.
