Biography

I joined the Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center faculty in 2018 as an Assistant Professor of Oncology in the Department of Medicine on the Transplant and Cellular Therapy Program. I graduated from Daemen College with a BS in Natural Sciences Individualized Studies and earned my PhD in Epidemiology at the University of Rochester. I completed my postdoctoral training in at the National Cancer Institute in the Radiation Epidemiology Branch in the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics focusing on late effects of hematologic malignancies, particularly second cancers. My current research focuses on hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) and outcomes, including graft-versus-host disease (GvHD), infections, second cancers, relapse, and treatment-related mortality (TRM).
