I am a hematologist and oncologist who specializes in treating patients with Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. I am currently an assistant professor in the Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Hematology. I studied biomedical engineering at Tulane University before receiving my medical training at The Ohio State University. I was rated in the top 10 percent of physicians in the nation for patient satisfaction in 2016 and 2017.

As a researcher, I’m passionate about finding novel therapies for cancer patients. Currently, my research is focused on designing and leading clinical trials. I’m proud to be the principle investigator in several trials that could help advance our fight against lymphoma. I’m inspired by the dual focus on both cutting-edge research and quality patient care that I find at OSUCCC – James. It’s what makes The James such a unique place.

Medical education is also very important to me. I am dedicated to teaching and mentoring medical students who will be future leaders in the fight against lymphoma and other cancers.
