I obtained his undergraduate degree from Princeton University and my medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania. I completed general surgery training at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania followed by subspecialty training in Surgical Oncology at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. In 2007, I joined the faculty of the University of California Davis School of Medicine in the Department of Surgery, Division of Surgical Oncology. My research focuses on sarcoma cancer stem cells as a mechanism of resistance to standard anti-proliferative anti-cancer therapies, and I am studying natural killer (NK) cellular immunotherapy as a mechanism to target the cancer stem cell population following standard cancer treatments such as radiotherapy. My goal is to translate these studies to early phase clinical trials for canine and human patients with advanced bone and soft tissue sarcomas. I also perform health services research analyzing short- and long-term outcomes in soft tissue sarcoma patients undergoing combined modality therapy. I currently hold the title of Associate Professor.
