About Me


I specialize in the care of people with genitourinary (GU) cancers, which includes cancer of the kidney, bladder, prostate, testicles, and penis. As medical oncology providers, my team and I use medications to treat cancer, like immunotherapy, pill therapies and chemotherapy. My team and I provide comprehensive cancer care, and we treat symptoms from cancer and/or the side effects from treatment. We work closely with surgeons, radiation oncologists, and other clinicians to provide the best and most individualized treatment strategy for each patient. A cancer diagnosis and everything that comes with it can be one of the most stressful events in someone’s life. I chose this specialty to support patients and their loved ones during these difficult times. I firmly believe in understanding the goals of my patients at the outset, constantly re-evaluating these goals, and working with patients to choose the course that most closely aligns with those goals.

Clinical Focus and Research

My Research Interests
Research Interests

My research focuses on the development of new treatments for patients with genitourinary cancers, which includes prostate, kidney, bladder, penis, and testicular cancers. My goal is to help develop better treatment options for patients through clinical trials. I am also interested in discovering and studying genes that make someone more likely to get cancer in the first place, so we can ultimately identify people who are at higher risk and stop cancers before they spread.
