About Me

I am a neuroradiologist with expertise in the imaging of the brain, neck, and spine. My interests lie in the advanced imaging of brain tumors using diffusion tensor, perfusion, spectroscopic and functional MRI. I work closely with the neurosurgeons, neurologists, and radiation oncologists at Memorial Sloan Kettering to bring the most advanced standard and experimental treatments to our patients.

Clinical Trials

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. Medicare and New York State Medicaid also provide benefits for care at MSK.
