Personal Statement

I am a CardioOncologist specializing in the care of cancer patients with heart disease. It is my goal to help cancer patients tolerate cardiac side effects of life-prolonging cancer therapy, and to optimize heart health of cancer survivors.

I am an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Cardiology. As a physician-investigator I have co-authored multiple papers in CardioOncology, and my body of research has been cited over 2,800 times by the scientific community.
