WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

After pursuing a college degree in mathematics and working in the finance world, I made a career switch into medicine because I loved working with patients. I chose to pursue radiation oncology because it combined my passion for technology and analytics with strong patient-doctor relationships. I believe in a team-oriented approach to cancer care with a real emphasis on working with other members of your healthcare team to give the absolute best care to our patients. In my time outside of Duke, I enjoy exploring the great outdoors of North Carolina.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

In the last several decades, we have made vast improvement in our approach to cancer treatment, which has translated to better outcomes for many patients. Unfortunately, not all people with cancer have access to this high-quality care and therefore suffer worse-than-expected outcomes. My research program has focused on identifying and eliminating disparities in access to cancer care and on improving outcomes for at-risk populations. I have a special interest in HIV-infected cancer patients, both in the United States and in resource-limited countries abroad.
