Research

Originally trained as a Medical Physicist, I have spent my Ph.D. and Postdoctoral research learning more about biochemistry and nanotechnology applied to medical oncology. My research interests lie in the broad area of drug delivery and imaging biomarkers. Over the past 5+ years, I have gained significant experience in the scientific development and commercialization of ultrasmall inorganic nanoparticles (sub-5 nm) for cancer diagnosis and therapy.

As an Instructor in the Medical Oncology department at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Harvard Medical School in the laboratory of Dr. Irene Ghobrial, my work transitioned toward the development of early diagnostic agents, biomarkers, and drug delivery.
