About Me

I am a medical oncologist and hematologist specializing in the care of people with multiple myeloma and related plasma cell disorders. With my colleagues at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, I am focused on identifying optimal treatment strategies for people with these disorders. I am interested in the molecular pathways underlying progression of plasma cell disorders and the development of targeted strategies aiming to delay, prevent, and cure full-blown disease. I also have an interest in health policy as it relates to oncologic drug approvals and the cost of cancer care.
