He received his S.B. in biological engineering from MIT, his M.D. from Weill Cornell Medical College, and completed dermatology residency training at Stanford. During medical school, he completed an HHMI Fellowship in the Lab of Dr. Joan Massagué at Memorial Sloan Kettering. His laboratory focuses on understanding how intercellular communication and cellular plasticity in skin disease drives pathogenesis and treatment resistance by leveraging single-cell and multi-omic approaches. He maintains a weekly clinical practice where he sees general dermatology patients.
