I received my B.S.E. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Princeton University, my M.D. and Ph.D. from the University of Pittsburgh in the Schools of Medicine and Public Health (thesis advisor, Dr. Daniel Weeks, Human Genetics), respectively. Childrens Hospital and Regional Medical Center was where I completed my residency in Pediatrics, followed by pediatric hematology/oncology training in the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine/National Cancer Institute joint fellowship.
