About Me

I am excited to join the faculty at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey at University Hospital as Assistant Professor in the department of Hematology/Oncology at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. I received my medical degree from Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA and completed my residency training in Internal Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. I moved back to my roots in New Jersey to complete a fellowship in Hematology/Oncology at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick, NJ, and am eager to practice in the state I call my home.

At the Rutgers Cancer Institute, we offer state-of-the-art, comprehensive and compassionate cancer care to patients in New Jersey. As hematologists, we also provide care for patients with all kinds of hematologic conditions, including bleeding, clotting, and other blood disorders. I treat all types of hematologic and oncologic conditions with a special clinical and research interest in hematology and gastrointestinal cancers. 

I strongly believe in working closely with my patients to prepare a treatment plan that makes sense to them, balancing quality of life, complementary therapies, and respect for their choices. I work closely with our team of surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, nurses, social workers and other providers within the Rutgers Cancer Institute at other locations throughout the state of New Jersey to help patients receive the most complete care while also understanding all elements of their disease and management. I believe every patient should have access to the latest resources and therapies through clinical trials, accessible through the Rutgers Cancer Institute network.

Outside of the clinic, I am passionate about global oncology and raising our next generation of medical professionals. I enjoy teaching medical students, residents, fellows and other health care professionals, both at home and overseas.
