I am an Associate Professor and Physician Leader of the Leukemia Clinical Research Unit at University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine. Board-certified in hematology, oncology and internal medicine, I specialize in detecting, monitoring, and treating acute leukemias and myeloid malignancies in adults. Previously at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Medstar Georgetown University Hospital, I focused on clinical trials in acute leukemias.

My research focuses on novel therapeutics, designing and conducting clinical trials, and health outcomes for leukemia and myeloid malignancy patients.

My goal is to provide excellent care by communicating effectively and educating patients in a collaborative environment.
