    Collapse Overview
    I am a hematologist/oncologist and care for patients with blood cancers with a particular focus on Hodgkin lymphoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), and Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia. I have a particular interest in immunotherapy, targeted therapies, stem cell transplantation, and CAR T-cell therapy, in which a patient’s T cells are engineered to target and kill cancer cells.

    My research focuses on novel immunotherapy approaches to treat lymphoma and personalized medicine, tailoring treatment to individual patients based on their disease characteristics and tumor genetics. I am a co-investigator on clinical trials evaluating new immunotherapies to treat lymphoma and collaborate with leading scientists on identifying biomarkers to predict which patients may benefit from certain treatments.

    I received my medical degree from Vanderbilt University and completed my internal medicine residency and hematology/oncology fellowship from Stanford University under the mentorship of Dr. Ranjana Advani. I serve on the Hodgkin lymphoma guidelines committee for the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.
