I’m an Assistant Professor at the Ohio State University, in the Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery.

I graduated with honors from Stanford University with a degree in Human Biology and received my MD from the University of Texas-Houston Medical School. After finishing residency at the University of Michigan, I completed a Cranial Base, Microvascular Reconstruction, and Head and Neck Surgery Fellowship at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. I was proud to receive many notable academic achievement awards during my education, as well as being a member of Stanford’s NCAA and PAC-10 championship men’s swimming team.

I am currently an active member of the American Academy of Otolaryngology, specifically the Head and Neck Education Committee, which ensures members receive the best and most current training in head and neck oncology. I am a member of the American Head and Neck Society with a role on the Microvascular Reconstructive Committee. In addition, I was recently named a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

My surgical and clinical expertise is in head and neck oncology, microvascular reconstruction, skin defect reconstruction, skull base surgery, robotic surgery, paragangliomas and carotid body tumors, and thyroid and parathyroid surgery. I have authored six chapters on head and neck oncology which are included in medical books and have contributed to more than 35 peer-reviewed publications.

My current research is focused on oncolytic viral therapy, HPV and head and neck cancer, and novel therapeutics for head and neck cancer. I’m working on multiple clinical trials with oncolytic viruses for head and neck cancer and metastatic disease.

I believe strongly in the mission of the OSUCCC – James to create a cancer-free world using cutting-edge research and individualized treatment for our patients. I’m humbled and inspired to be part of such a noble cause.
