I am a radiation oncologist who cares for people with a variety of cancers at Memorial Sloan Kettering Basking Ridge. I see about 400 new patients each year. Before joining the MSK faculty in 2009, I was chief resident at New York University School of Medicine.
I knew from a young age that I wanted to help people as a doctor. Radiation oncology especially appealed to me because it provides fast, measurable results in noninvasive way. I sometimes tell patients to picture me as a “virtual surgeon.”
I have extensive experience in image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT) using Cone Beam CT and in the use of MV and KV imaging for more-targeted therapy. I have experience in stereotactic therapy including brain and body stereotactic surgery, body radiotherapy, and treatment using respiratory gating techniques and 4D-CT techniques.
I am well versed in treating cancers in all areas of the body and have extensive expertise in advanced radiation techniques that minimize damage to normal tissue. These include intensity-modulated radiation therapy, image-guided radiotherapy, and stereotactic radiosurgery. I also recruit patients to clinical trials and have served as principal investigator of breast and central nervous system trials at MSK.
What I love about working at MSK Basking Ridge is that we are making our world-class care accessible to more people, closer to home. Our routine collaboration among colleagues ensures that all patients receive the best possible care. I aim to empower my patients and educate them about their treatment so that we can tackle their cancer together as a team.
When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family, cooking, and seeing off-Broadway performances.

Research is integral to our mission at Memorial Sloan Kettering, and clinical trials help us discover better forms of patient care and treatment. For you, this could mean access to a new therapy or therapy combination. Click to see a list of the trials I’m currently leading.

Most major health insurers offer plans that include MSK as one of their in-network providers. If MSK is in-network, it means all our doctors are too. Medicaid and New York State Medicare also provide benefits for care at MSK.Learn more
