    Collapse Overview
    I am a clinical fellow in the Division of Hematology/Oncology planning on a career in thoracic oncology. I have extensive training in health services research spanning policy evaluation, cost-effectiveness analyses, and implementation science. My research interests are centered around issues of affordability and equity in cancer care delivery and designing and implementing interventions to mitigate these growing challenges, particularly for patients with lung cancer. I also study the impact of telehealth on cancer outcomes and payor-related barriers to timely, high-quality care. I have a BA/BS in biology & economics from the University of Pennsylvania, an MD from Stanford School of Medicine, and an MPH from Harvard T.H Chan School of Public Health.
