I am originally from Scranton Pennsylvania and did my undergraduate work at Cornell University majoring in both Biology and Classic Civilizations. I completed the MD/PhD Program and did my medical internship at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia then relocated to the Bay Area to train here at Stanford. I’m passionate about translational and basic cancer research as well as patient-centered care, advocacy and survivorship for cancer patients. Outside of work, my hobbies include reading and writing science fiction, experimenting with cooking vegan recipes, spending time with my family (including my fiance Candice and 2 dogs, both Belgian Malinois), jogging and enjoying what the Bay Area has to offer (hiking, beaches, culinary scene and wine-tasting to name a few). After graduation I hope to transition to a physician scientist position at an academic medical center.
I’m originally from Cleveland, I graduated from Ohio State University, where I studied mathematics and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. I graduated from Duke University School of Medicine in 2018, and completed a medicine internship at University of Kentucky in 2019.

I love eating and trying new foods! One of my hobbies is traveling to different cities, then going on Yelp and eating at the top 3 places. One of my newer hobbies is working out--so that I can eat more. I can spend an infinite amount of time with my dog, and I also enjoy hiking and painting!
After growing up in the quintessential Midwestern suburbs of Columbus, Ohio, I moved to the East Coast to attend the University of Pennsylvania where I studied Economics as an undergraduate student. I then joined Penn's Perelman School of Medicine as a 21st Century Gamble Scholar, and while in medical school, I collaborated on research projects with the Center for Health Incentives and Behavioral Economics as well as the Department of Radiation Oncology at Penn. I concurrently pursued my MBA at The Wharton School, and throughout my education, I've sought out work experiences in hospital operations, health insurance, biopharma business development, and biotechnology investing. Prior to starting Radiation Oncology residency, I completed a Transitional Year internship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. In my free time, I enjoy spinning, playing tennis, wine tasting, and finding ways to be more outdoorsy now that I live in the Bay Area.

My name is Dasha, and I am so happy to be back in the Bay Area where I spent much of my childhood. I went to medical school at UCSD in sunny San Diego, where I was lucky to connect with incredible personal and research mentors who introduced me to rad onc. Prior to that, I received my MPH focusing on epidemiology and biostatistics at Emory University; during my time there, I interned with the CDC in Belize and conducted research in statistical genetics and cancer epidemiology in Denmark. I am interested in translational and computational research, health policy and economics with a focus on equity, and advocating for medical education reform. In my spare time, I love to spend time with my toddler, partner, and rescue animals, cook and eat extravagant meals, and spend as much time near the beach as possible.
I was born and raised in the Bay Area. I went a little south to Los Angeles for my B.S. and PhD degrees at UCLA where I studied glioblastoma and developed new therapeutic strategies against it. Afterwards, I was fortunate enough to move to New York for medical school at Columbia University. After all these years exploring different cities, I was excited to have the opportunity to come back home. I finished my preliminary year in medicine at Kaiser Santa Clara from 2021-2022 and am now excited to continue my journey at Stanford. During my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and our dogs, traveling to new places, and staying active.
