Curriculum Vitae

Current Positions:

Associate Professor of Medicine, Department of Medicine
Director of Thoracic Medical Oncology, J. Graham Brown Cancer Center
Director of the Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program

Clinical Focus and Research:

My clinical focus is on multi-disciplinary approaches to the treatment of thoracic cancers.  I work with surgical and radiation oncologists to ensure that my patients receive the most effective combination of treatment modalities and have access to the most innovative drugs for the treatment of cancer.

My research interests include clinical trials of new chemotherapeutics and targeted agents, identification of barriers to treatment, observational studies and studies on supportive care. I collaborate with basic science researchers to facilitate translational research.
