Positions

Overview

  • I’m honored to be an Assistant Professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) and the Birmingham VA Medical Center (BVAMC) since July 2021. I look forward to a career of clinical care, research, and educational endeavors, as I seek to improve the lives of older adults with cancer and patients with gastrointestinal (GI) malignancy.

    I long been drawn to the field of geriatric oncology, and I'm truly humbled to work with older adults with cancer. Under the mentorship of Dr. Grant Williams, I have worked to assess the prevalence and potential problems of polypharmacy in older adults with gastrointestinal malignancy. As a member of the UAB Cancer and Aging Program, I look forward to providing personalized care for older adults by seeking to incorporate the geriatric assessment into routine oncologic practice.

    Additionally, I’m truly honored to work with patients with GI malignancy, and I have a particular focus in upper GI, or gastroesophageal, malignancy. The field of GI oncology continues to grow, as new trials and therapeutics are constantly evolving and advancing cancer therapy. I look forward to bringing new treatments and providing dedicated care for our wonderful patients in the city of Birmingham and the state of Alabama.
