Board Certifications

Internal Medicine; Medical Oncology

I am a board-certified medical oncologist and physician-scientist who specializes in caring for people with hematologic malignancies, including acute and chronic leukemias, myelodysplastic syndromes, and myeloproliferative neoplasms.

I currently spend the majority of my time performing laboratory-based research with the central aim of developing and investigating the mechanisms of action of novel leukemia-directed epigenetic therapies. My hope is that these research efforts will ultimately result in a deeper understanding of how leukemias develop as well as improved clinical outcomes for our patients.
