About Me

I am interested in the epidemiology of infections that occur in patients who have complex conditions, such as those with cancer. Patients who have a number of pre-existing conditions are challenging to treat, and we are engaged in clinical research to study these complex conditions and find better way to treat them. I am investigating new methods designed to examine infections in their natural clinical setting and to provide unbiased estimates of their impact on patient outcomes.

Most major health insurers offer plans that include MSK as one of their in-network providers. If MSK is in-network, it means all our doctors are too. Medicaid and New York State Medicare also provide benefits for care at MSK.
