Associate Professor of Radiation Oncology

I am a radiation oncologist interested in researching the interaction between diet, exercise, and metabolism. My research interests include modulating metabolism through diet, exercise, general activity, and pharmaceutical agents and the impact of body composition on outcomes. My goal is to assess whether exercise, and specifically weight training and functional exercise training can help improve overall health and potentially cancer-specific outcomes in patients treated for breast cancer and lymphoma.
