I am a board-certified medical oncologist dedicated to caring for people with lung cancer. I have a particular interest in precision medicine techniques and treating people with lung cancer that has spread to the brain. As a member of the Brain Metastasis Clinical Center, I am part of a Disease Management Team of neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, neurologists, and supportive care providers. Our goal is giving personalized care to people with lung cancer that has spread to the brain. I am an investigator in ongoing clinical trials studying novel ways to treat people with lung cancer. I see patients at the Rockefeller Outpatient Pavilion in Manhattan as well as at MSK Westchester in West Harrison, New York.

I am dedicated to caring for people with advanced lung cancer, including non-small cell lung cancer and small cell lung cancer. Finding out that you or a family member has lung cancer can be overwhelming. My team and I will help you understand your diagnosis and find the best path forward. I am devoted to providing the highest level of care, with the goal of providing personalized care to improve outcomes and quality of life. Together with a comprehensive team of cancer experts, I strive to ensure that all of my patients have individualized and exceptional care.

My research focuses on using laboratory findings to design clinical trials that further the care of people with lung cancer. With precision medicine and immunotherapy, people with lung cancer — including those with advanced disease, such as cancer that has spread to the brain — have many treatment and clinical trial options available. My goal, in research and when caring for patients, is to devise novel treatments. I aim to bring the discoveries made by our laboratory researchers to the bedside, for the benefit of those affected by advanced lung cancer.

My team and I will help you understand your diagnosis and find the best path forward.
