I am a medical oncologist specializing in the treatment of acute and chronic leukemias. I care for patients who are admitted to Memorial Hospital, in Manhattan. Additionally, I am a member of the Sloan Kettering Institute and MSK Cancer Biology & Genetics Program, where I conduct research to better understand and develop novel therapies for acute leukemias.

During my training as a physician-scientist, I benefited greatly from exposure to the exciting discoveries and breakthroughs that emerged in the cancer research field over the past decade. It is my goal to continue these efforts in the laboratory, specifically conducting research on the metabolism of blood cancer cells to develop new and better treatments for our patients. Our ambition is that these new approaches can quickly advance to clinical trials here at MSK.

A diagnosis of leukemia or the start of a new treatment can be a very challenging time for a patient and their family. When in the hospital, I strive to make sure that our treatment team — a dedicated group of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and support staff — is providing the best care possible. To me, that means not only delivering the highest quality medical treatment, but also removing some of the uncertainty from the process. I aim to review the rationales, logistics, and expectations for our therapies with each patient I meet. My hope is that the more effectively we communicate, the better experience our patients will have.

When in the hospital, I strive to make sure that our treatment team — a dedicated group of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and support staff — is providing the best care possible.
