I am a diagnostic pathologist with expertise in thoracic pathology and cytopathology. After a residency and surgical pathology fellowship at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and cytopathology fellowship at Memorial Sloan Kettering, I joined the faculty here in 2008. As part of the Thoracic Disease Management Team, I work with my colleagues from surgery, oncology, and radiation oncology to care for people affected by lung, pleural, and mediastinal neoplasms.

My research interests are focused primarily on lung cancer. I aim to advance the diagnosis and classification of lung tumors, and to develop biomarkers that help clinicians select the best treatment for people with these tumors. I collaborate closely with members of the Thoracic Disease Management Team to support various clinical and laboratory-based investigations for our team.


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.
