Description of Clinical Expertise

I am a medical oncologist who specializes in breast cancer. I only see breast cancer patients in the outpatient setting, but treat patients will all cancers when working in the hospital.

Description of Research Expertise

My research focuses on clinical trials and drug development for those with early stage and metastatic breast cancer. I also seek to develop novel predictive biomarkers specifically using molecular imaging as companions to early phase trials.
