I am a medical oncologist who specializes in treating people with cancers of the colon and rectum. I also care for people with anal squamous cell cancer, carcinoid tumors, and other gastrointestinal tract cancers.

My clinical and laboratory research at Memorial Sloan Kettering center on understanding molecular subsets of colorectal cancer and developing new therapies based on this understanding. My work focuses on colorectal tumors with mutations in the BRAF or RAS genes, and I am leading our clinical trial program for colorectal tumors that harbor BRAF mutations. I both treat patients and perform laboratory research and believe that my experiences in each realm inform my work and make me a better researcher. Ultimately, I aim to use our insights into cancer cell biology to help guide the care of our patients and to develop more rationally designed clinical trials that test mechanism-based therapeutic strategies.


Doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering work as teams, with specialists from all different areas. This allows us to consider all your needs together, and to give you the best possible care.
