Biography


I’m a radiation oncologist and an assistant professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology at The Ohio State University. I am passionate about practicing medicine as well as research. Some of my recent studies have been on the human papillomavirus virus (HPV) and on quality of life issues for patients with cancers of the head and neck.

I believe that teamwork is the key to ultimately ending cancer, which is one of the reasons why I’m proud to be part of OSUCCC – James. Our multidisciplinary teams of subspecialists provide expert care to our patients. I’m also inspired by being part of a department whose goal is to take the most cutting-edge research and translate it into care that is personalized for each patient based on the specific biological markers of his or her cancer.

Giving back has always been important to me. While earning my MD and PhD, I served as the chair of my medical school’s chapter of Physicians for Human Rights. I was also the co-founder of a non-profit organization that promotes educational opportunities. More recently, I am a part of Pelotonia and ride more than 100 miles to help raise money for cancer research at OSCUCC – James.
