Current Research Interests


My current research interests focus on cone disorders, such as X-linked cone dysfunction, achromatopsia, color vision deficiency, and blue cone monochromacy. My aim is to gain a deeper understanding of the relationship between visual function and the structural integrity of the retinal mosaic. At MCW, I use Adaptive Optics SLO to characterize cone density and topography, and use a number of different color vision tests, such as the Nagel anomaloscope (a.k.a. Rayleigh match) and the Colour Assessment and Diagnosis (CAD) test to determine the type and severity of color vision loss.

brief biographical information


Having been born and raised in a small village near the town of Winchester, UK, my appointment at MCW is easily my most exciting adventure yet. I have always been interested in how we are able to sense (and make sense of) the world, which led me to study for a BSc in psychology at the University of Warwick. I went on to study for a PhD in optometry and visual science at City University, London, which further increased my interest in the visual system. I feel very lucky to be part of the AOIP and I am looking forward to all the new discoveries we are going to make.
