    Collapse Overview
    I am a pediatric hematologist/oncologist at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego and an assistant clinical professor in pediatrics at UC San Diego School of Medicine. I am board certified in pediatrics and pediatric hematology/oncology. On the inpatient service, I spend my time on the Leukemia/Lymphoma service with clinical interests in acute lymphoblastic leukemias and pediatric lymphomas including both Hodgkin Lymphoma and Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma(NHL).

    I completed my pediatric hematology/oncology fellowship at UC San Diego. During that time, I developed an academic interest in cancer immunology during my fellowship studying tumor-induced exhaustion at the La Jolla Institute of Allergy and Immunology in the laboratory of Dr. Anjana Rao. My clinical research interests included examining the role of tumor profiling in guiding targeted therapy.

    I am very much interested in combining my basic science and clinical interests to explore novel therapies for refractory and relapsed cancers through both translational and clinical projects.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
