I am a medical oncologist with a primary focus on the medical treatment of patients with gynecologic cancers. I work very closely with a team of surgeons, oncologists, and radiation therapists to determine and provide the best treatment for each patient with these diseases. My research initiatives include improving the treatment options for women with recurrent ovarian cancer and uterine sarcomas.
