Research Interests

My goal as a Pediatric Neuro-Oncologist is to improve the survival and reduce the morbidity of children with central nervous system tumors. For my fellowship training I have focused on medulloblastoma. In particular I have studied the genomics of this tumor. My aim is to continue extensive genomic analysis of this and other central nervous system tumors in order to translate the enhanced knowledge of tumor biology into novel curative therapies.
