Summary

I am a Hematologist with special clinical and research focus on lymphoma and lymphoproliferative disorders. During my categorical and advanced fellowships, my research focus have primarily been on aggressive lymphomas; diffuse large B cell lymphoma and Hodgkins lymphoma. I intend to develop novel regimens to improve outcomes for these particular diseases, in frontline and for relapsed cases.
