    Instructor, Medicine - Oncology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am an Instructor of Medicine in Oncology at Stanford. Since finishing the clinical component of my oncology fellowship, my clinical and research focus has been on breast cancer; my dedication to breast cancer care and research continues to grow as I become more fully immersed in this incredibly rewarding field.

    I conduct research using an innovative breast cancer database that links patient medical records with cancer registry and genomic data. I am currently using this database to investigate the link between immune-mediated markers and survival in triple-negative breast cancer patients.

    Furthermore, I have worked on a phase II clinical trial addressing the important question of whether single-agent PARP inhibitor therapy has anti-cancer activity in advanced BRCA wildtype, HER2-negative breast cancer patients with homologous recombination deficiency. I am co-principal investigator of this trial, and the recipient of a three-year Susan G. Komen Postdoctoral Fellowship Award surrounding this project.
