Area of interest
I am a clinically active radiation oncologist specializing in genitourinary malignancies (e.g. prostate and bladder cancer) and breast cancer. I am an engineer by training with a BS in biomedical engineering and a MS in physiology and biophysics. My formal research training has included a Doris Duke Clinical Research Fellowship at the University of North Carolina and an MPH from the Harvard School of Public Health – both focused on health services research. I also served as a Health Policy Fellow for the American Society of Clinical Oncology. I have a particular research interest in the value and financial aspects of care, and efficiency of care delivery, as well as comparative and cost effectiveness analyses. The overarching goal of my research and national committee involvement is to impact clinical practice and health policy. I have published on cancer care utilization and patterns of practice, focusing on identifying areas of healthcare inefficiency.
