I am a board-certified internist & pediatrician and currently a medical oncology fellow at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Mass General Brigham. My clinical focus is caring for patients with bone & soft tissue sarcoma. My research efforts are focused on the care and outcomes of adolescents and young adults (AYA) with cancer, with particular interest in patient-reported outcomes, novel care delivery models, financial toxicity, socioeconomic well-being, and physical activity. I am also passionate about creative and reflective writing in medicine.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
