I am a medical oncologist who specializes in the treatment of head and neck cancers. As part of a team of experts from different areas of expertise, including medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and surgeons, I am dedicated to providing comprehensive, compassionate, and personalized care to people with head and neck cancers.

My clinical research focus is on developing new treatments for people with squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck. I conduct clinical trials involving targeted therapy and immunotherapy, as well as new combinations of agents, aimed at improving the outcomes for our patients.
