Board Certifications

Nuclear Medicine

I am an American Board of Nuclear Medicine–certified physician-scientist trained in molecular imaging and targeted radiotherapy. I have extensive experience in nuclear medicine and adoptive cell therapy and frequently work with colleagues across departments at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to take an interdisciplinary approach to disease management.

My research leverages my training in translational and clinical research and currently focuses on tracking adoptively transferred cells and evaluating theranostic approaches (imaging combined with targeted therapy) for neuroendocrine and brain tumors, and for other cancers. Through my research, I hope to contribute to the exciting field of radiotheranostics, with a focus on T cell therapy, which is starting to show its great potential to improve outcomes for people with cancer.
