Research Interests

I am a member of the Phase One Expansion/Molecular Studies (POEMS, Phase I clinical trials) and Gastrointestinal (GI) Medical Oncology Programs. These comprehensive programs include multidisciplinary cancer clinics, tumor boards, and research endeavors (clinical trials). I am interested in developing new treatments for GI cancers which are more effective and safer, in order to improve the lives of my patients. My work is supported by multiple grants.
