I am a hematologist and medical oncologist who specializes in caring for people with leukemia. I am a member of the Leukemia Service and Center for Cell Engineering at Memorial Sloan Kettering. I am committed to providing personalized, compassionate care for our patients and their families.

I often meet patients and their families and caregivers during a very challenging and emotionally charged period in their lives. I value the strong partnerships I form with our patients and their caregivers through both illness and wellness. I want us to make important decisions about care together.

As a researcher, I want to improve the way we treat blood cancers. The past several years have seen exciting developments in therapies for acute lymphoblastic leukemia and chronic lymphocytic leukemia in particular. We have made strides in understanding these conditions. I hope to develop safe and effective therapies and to define how best to use them in caring for people with leukemia.

I have a strong interest in using the power of the immune system to fight blood cancers more effectively. This treatment approach is called immunotherapy. I am working to develop and deliver chimeric antigen receptor T cell therapies for people with leukemia or lymphoma. This field holds great promise, though it has a different set of challenges compared with traditional chemotherapy. Because of the skill and experience of the nurses and doctors at MSK, we are able to deliver the newest treatments in the safest possible manner.

When I meet with patients, my goal is for them to leave the appointment feeling informed and empowered. I want them to know that they are in good hands. I listen carefully to their perspective and address their concerns. I also explain the range of options available to us, outline the advantages and disadvantages of each, and offer my recommendation. I often remind my patients and their families that we never stop caring for them. Our entire team of experts will be there to support and guide them through all of the stages of their journey.
