Personal profile

Research Interests

My interests include treating primary brain tumors such as gliomas and meningiomas. I also have a specific interest in metastatic disease to the brain from systemic cancers such as melanoma, lung and breast cancer and lead multiple trials in both primary brain tumors and metastatic disease. I am interested in providing novel care to my patients while maintaining quality of life.
