Our lab specializes in retinal imaging using adaptive optics scanning light ophthalmoscopy; investigating the effects of various pathologies on photoreceptor integrity, as well as on visual function. My scientific interests revolve around the cone dysfunction syndromes and color vision, although I have taken a winding road to arrive where I am now - via a BSc in Psychology, a PhD in the Applied Vision Research Centre (AVRC: John Barbur), and a postdoctoral fellowship in the Advanced Ocular Imaging Program (AOIP: Joseph Carroll). My interests are therefore often piqued by topics outside my current field.
