I am a medical oncologist/hematologist who focuses on caring for patients with lymphoma. I have clinical expertise in both Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and use routine treatments, experimental therapies, and high-dose therapy with autologous stem cell rescue (“autologous transplantation”) in the treatment of my patients. My research interests focus on improving our understanding of the long-term effects of lymphoma treatments, and on studying new ways to improve the quality of life for survivors of lymphoma. I am also exploring new treatments in the management of high-risk aggressive lymphoma and certain uncommon types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
