Biography

I chose this specialty because of the many exciting new therapeutic options for patients with genitourinary cancers, as well as the opportunity to become an integral part of a team that cares for patients during one of their most difficult times.

As my patient, you can depend on me for compassion and dedication, in addition to an innovative and patient-centered approach to care. My research interests are clinical trials for genitourinary cancers and cancer survivorship research. During my free time, I enjoy running, hiking, cooking and travel.

Conditions I Treat

- Prostate cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Testicular cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Adrenal cancer

Research

I am a medical oncologist specialized in genitourinary malignancy and an Assistant Professor of medicine with research interests in cancer control, particularly in the development, implementation, and dissemination of mHealth behavioral interventions to prevent and manage treatment- and cancer-related toxicities in cancer survivors, with a specific focus in cardiovascular complications from cancer treatment. Additionally, I am interested in developing clinical trials to evaluate new therapeutics for treatment of urologic malignancies.
