About Me

My education dates back to 1999 when I graduated with highest honors and earned a BA in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry from Rutgers University. In 2005, I received my medical degree from New Jersey Medical School in Newark, New Jersey. The rest of my training was at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick, New Jersey, where I completed a residency in internal medicine and a fellowship in the subspecialties of hematology and oncology. I joined Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey in 2012 as a hematologist/oncologist and an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.

Currently, I work as a hematologist in the Division of Hematology at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. The Division of Hematology provides specialized care for patients with complex hematologic conditions, evaluating and managing patients through several specialized and statewide referral centers and programs. I collaborate with hematologists with significant expertise in various blood disorders to provide innovative comprehensive diagnosis and treatment.

Clinical Expertise

Stem cell transplantation (autologous and allogeneic), benign hematologic disorders, myeloproliferative diseases and aplastic anemia.
