I recently joined the faculty at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.  As Assistant Professor in the Department of Surgical Oncology, I strive to provide the best contemporary multidisciplinary care for patients with soft tissue sarcomas (STS) and cutaneous malignancies.  I am also thrilled to be able to continue my career as a surgeon-scientist at MDACC, where my primary research focus will be to elucidate the role of immuno-oncology and the epigenome in STS and melanoma. 

My research program will focus on the following:

  1. Delineating the sarcoma immune microenvironment and understanding its impact on response and resistance to immune checkpoint blockade STS
  2. Elucidating the role of the epigenome in STS and melanoma biology
  3. Defining clinical treatment patterns and optimizing clinical outcomes for patients with STS
