I am an Assistant Professor of Medical Oncology who primarily treats patients with colon cancer and gastroesophageal cancers. My laboratory and translational research is focused on tumor immune evasion and immunotherapy, particularly in the setting of metastasis. This work has led to a specific interest in tumor-mediated development of dendritic cell tolerance and suppressive myeloid populations. The ultimate goal of this research is to create biomarker-directed immunotherapies for advanced gastrointestinal cancers.
