Yale Medicine


I am an Assistant Professor of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at Yale School of Medicine. I received a B.A. in Biological Sciences from Columbia University and M.D. from New York Medical College. During medical school, my research focused on gene expression profiling in glioblastoma multiforme and metastatic brain tumors. I completed an internship year in Internal Medicine at North Shore University Hospital, followed by a residency in Diagnostic Radiology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. I also completed a fellowship in Neuroradiology at Yale-New Haven Hospital.

My current primary clinical and research interests lie in spine trauma, spinal cord injury, and multimodality treatment of spine tumors. I have been a member of the American Society of Spine Radiology since 2011, currently serving on its Ad Hoc Research and Education Committee.
