Area of interest

I am a hematologist and oncologist with a clinical focus in blood cancers. Research interests include novel strategies to measure and intervene upon physical function during and after cancer treatment. Digital biomarker development, physiologic sensor integration, home-based functional assessments, patient reported outcomes implementation, and health coaching are areas of current efforts. A major goal is to leverage emerging technologies to improve the cancer patient experience.

I have also assisted the American Society of Hematology, the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research, and others in work involving large registries to develop risk modeling for clinical outcomes in patients with hematologic conditions.
