    Collapse Overview
    As an Assistant Professor in Hematology/Oncology based at the San Francisco VA with dual training in aging research, I am passionate about improving care for older patients with cancer. My research focuses on understanding the interactions between cancer, cancer therapy, and geriatric syndromes such as cognitive impairment. My ultimate goal is to develop ways to improve the care of older adults with cancer and cognitive impairment.
