Internal Medicine

I am a medical oncologist who specializes in caring for people with lung cancer. I am also a health services researcher who is interested in innovative cancer care systems that provide high quality, affordable, and sustainable care.

My graduate education at Harvard Medical School and Harvard Business School, where my work focused on improving care delivery in a resource-poor setting, gave me an appreciation for improving complex healthcare systems. I also performed research at Massachusetts General Hospital that focused on ways for leaders to make hospitals safer and graduated with honors for this work. 

My research has evolved to study aspects of cancer care delivery including disparities in cancer care, the overuse of aggressive treatments at the end of life, and interventions to improve the quality of care delivery. I was selected as one of the American Society of Clinical Oncology’s inaugural health policy fellows; in this role I am working to identify and prioritize policy areas for intervention to improve the value of cancer care.

One of my patients’ top concerns is balancing treatment with quality of life. My goal for them and their caregivers is to feel like their concerns and personal goals have been heard, recognized, and incorporated into their personalized care plan.
