About Me

I am a fellowship-trained radiologist who specializes in oncologic body imaging. I have a special interest in cardiothoracic cancers and I am experienced in interpreting body CT, cardiac MRI, and ultrasound. At Memorial Sloan Kettering, I am a member of the Thoracic and Cardiac Disease Management Teams. I work closely with my colleagues across many departments to ensure our patients receive comprehensive, coordinated care. I am also part of the lung cancer screening team.

In addition to my clinical duties, my current research interests include enhancing multimodality imaging techniques for lung cancer and cardiac tumors. I am also actively enrolled in clinical trials that monitor patients’ responses to treatment.
