About Me

I’m a hematologist-oncologist and provide clinical, inpatient care of patients with acute myeloid leukemia and acute lymphocytic leukemia. I also serve as an assistant professor of internal medicine at The Ohio State University.

I received my medical training at the University of Cincinnati, where I also earned a PhD in molecular genetics. I completed a fellowship in hematology and oncology at Stanford University, where I later completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Garry Nolan focusing on applying mass cytometry (CyTOF) to the characterization of clinical samples from patients with hematologic malignancies.

As a member of the Leukemia and Hematologic Malignancies Program at the OSUCCC – James, my research laboratory is focused on using the single-cell deep functional phenotyping enabled by mass cytometry. That helps predict how novel therapeutic approaches might be optimally combined with current therapies to prevent treatment failures.

The collegial, caring atmosphere at The James makes this not only a wonderful place to work but a great place to receive treatment too. Our multidisciplinary approach, combined with state-of-the-art science, helps patients have more efficient, targeted treatment and better outcomes.
