Education And Training
  • Fellow, Stanford University Medical Center, 2010 - Body Imaging Fellowship
  • Resident, UCLA School of Medicine, 2009 - Radiological Sciences
  • Postdoctoral Fellow, UCLA Crump Institute for Molecular Imaging, 2005 - Division of Medical Imaging Informatics
  • Postdoctoral Fellow, UCLA Crump Institute for Molecular Imaging, 2004 - Pharmacology
  • Intern, UCLA Medical Center, 2003 - Internal Medicine
  • PhD, New York University, 2002 - Molecular Oncology and Immunology
  • MD, New York University, 2002

My research interests include molecular imaging with regards to cancer detection. I am currently collaborating with the Gillies research group and am interested in identifying cancer specific markers for imaging in the preclinical and clinical stage, including using hyperpolarized compounds for detecting tumor activity with MR spectroscopy.
