I’m a medical oncologist treating patients with sarcomas as well as poorly classified and difficult treat tumors. My primary role is to treat the complete patient, not just the cancer. I am committed to understanding our patients’ entire health backgrounds, the biology of their tumors, and separate health factors so we can customize a sophisticated, targeted treatment regimen that is specific for each patient.

I serve as an assistant professor in the Departments of Biomedical Informatics and Internal Medicine, Division of Medical Oncology. As a researcher with a background in developing sophisticated software to analyze cancer data, I’m honored to work at a world-class, comprehensive cancer center where treatment is a collaborative effort of accomplished, accessible, compassionate professionals who extend beyond measures to provide first-class patient care.

Research is critical to treating these types of cancers that are often poorly understood. As a Sarcoma Alliance for Research Collaboration (SARC) Career Development Awardee, I receive funds that allow my laboratory to develop new and sophisticated methods of predicting chemotherapy success in sarcoma.

I serve on the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Health Information Technology Committee, and I am the ASCO representative for the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH). Additionally, I am the Ohio State University representative for the Cancer Informatics for Cancer Centers (CI4CC).
