BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH

I am committed to clinical excellence, innovation, diversity, equity and inclusion. As a board-certified radiation oncologist who specializes in stereotactic radiosurgery and radiation neuro-oncology, my clinical practice and research focuses on the radiation management of adult and pediatric brain and spinal tumors. I served as the founding Co-Director of the Stanford Radiosurgery Program pioneering the robotic radiosurgery for clinical utilization. I have spent my academic career as an investigator and clinician conducting clinical and translational research as the senior radiation oncologist of the Stanford Cancer Institute and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Pediatric Brain Tumor team. Implementing strategies toward radiation oncology workforce diversity and health equity is a key area of my academic scholarship and service. With a strong track record of administrative leadership in roles in clinical arenas and in education as a former radiation oncology residency program director, I am now the Associate Dean of medical student admissions. In this role, I have employed mission-driven strategic leadership and innovative approaches such as holistic admissions to improve diversity and enhance the learning environment. At Stanford Medicine, I also serve as Chair of the Stanford Medicine Faculty Senate subcommittee on diversity, member of the Diversity Cabinet, the Medical Executive Committee and on the Executive Committee for Continuous Quality Improvement.
