Research Summary

My research interests are in thoracic oncology and genetic drivers of early-stage lung adenocarcinoma, the role of systems genetics in cancer development, small molecule drug development and preclinical testing of novel therapeutics. I have a specific interest in semi-solid lung lesions and studying the differences between premalignant ground glass tumors and small, solid early-stage lung adenocarcinoma.

My research is funded by grants from the American Cancer Society, the Yale Cancer Center, the International Lung Cancer Foundation, and the Yale Lung SPORE.
