Research Summary

Although a US born citizen, I was raised in Greece and returned to the US with my family and studied Chemical Engineering at MIT, completing a SB degree in 1995,  studied medicine at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and completed residency in radiation oncology at New York University. I worked as an Assistant Attending, specializing in neuro-oncology and stereotactic radiosurgery at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, NYC, NY from 2005-2007.

Since 2007, I have worked at New York University in the Department of Radiation Oncology specializing in the treatment of gynecologic cancer radiotherapy utilizing up-to-date brachytherapy techniques in order to achieve cure in advanced cervical, vaginal, vulvar and endometrial cancers.  I have been the PI on on-going research projects involving QA improvement and patient experience in gynecologic brachytherapy, evaluating dosimetry of brachytherapy applicators used in brachytherapy, and incorporating MRI planning in cervical brachytherapy treatment planning. I have co-authored over 20 journal articles, presented over 50 abstracts at national meetings and have mentored MIT college students interested in medicine, and provide teaching and research mentoring for radiation oncology residents and fellows in gynecologic oncology surgery.  Also, continuing on my previous work in stereotactic radiosurgery in CNS tumors, I also am PI on a grant evaluating a patient-specific End-to-End QA and pre-treatment plan verification for cranial SRS using the ICON-Gamma knife system funded by RTsafe, Inc. I represent the Radiation Oncology Department at New York University Langone Medical Center’s Physician Quality Leaders Committee, National Measures Executive Meetings, serve as the radiation oncology representative for the Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center Disease Management Group for Gynecologic Oncology and also serve on the IRB Committee.

I specialize in the treatment of gynecologic cancers and have extensive experience in brachytherapy techniques both intracavitary and complex interstitial cases. I am interested in sexual health and psychological outcomes as well as all survivorship issues. My goal is to perform excellent advanced radiation oncologic care using the latest technological advances and imaging but also to address any personal concerns patients face so that they can return to normal healthy functioning as soon as possible.
