I am a Radiation Oncologist at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) in Little Rock, Arkansas. As a physician-scientist, I treat patients with gastrointestinal cancers at the UAMS Radiation Oncology Center (ROC) using state-of-the-art radiation therapy techniques. I also have a lab at the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute (WPRCI) where my research focus is on discovering novel therapeutic strategies for the deadly disease of pancreatic cancer. In the lab, I utilize genetic and proteomic approaches to address the fundamental mechanisms of genetic alterations in cancer cells which result in heightened DNA repair leading to radiation and chemotherapy resistance.
I joined the UAMS team after completing a residency in Radiation Oncology at the Ohio State University (OSU). I obtained dual M.D. and Ph.D. degrees from the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at The University of Texas McGovern Medical School and MD Anderson Cancer Center Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences in 2016. I obtained a B.S. degree from Texas Tech University in 2009.
