Research Interests

My research focus in breast cancer has related to accelerated partial breast irradiation (I am a co-PI for NSABP B39/RTOG 0413), DCIS (I am co-PI for NSABP B43), and post-mastectomy radiotherapy. I have published extensively in breast cancer and lymphoma radiotherapy. I am a member of the NCI's Breast Oncology Local Disease (BOLD) task force. I serve as co-Chair of NRG Oncology's Quality Control Committee and and am a member of the Breast Working Group Committee and the International Lymphoma Radiation Oncology Group (ILROG).

Clinical Interests
My clinical and research interests relate to the treatment of Breast Cancer, Hodgkin Lymphoma, Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, and Total Body Irradiation for stem cell transplantation. I have extensive experience with accelerated whole breast radiotherapy and partial breast radiation. Whenever an option, I makes sure my patients are aware of clinical trial opportunities. I am dedicated to providing attentive, compassionate and personalized treatment to every patient.

Care Philosophy
I am dedicated to warm, compassionate and individualized care for each patient. Cancer care can be very complicated, and it is important to me that my patients are informed and educated partners in whatever treatment they chose to receive. I offer patient-tailored treatment based upon the latest research experience in the field.
