My current research is focused on altering the optical configurations within the adaptive optics ophthalmoscope to improve the ability to detect and monitor vascular damage in the human eye. I am also interested in using adaptive optics and optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology to detect biomarkers in neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and glaucoma.
I joined the Advanced Ocular Imaging Program in the summer of 2012 while I completed my undergraduate degree at Marquette University. After graduating with a BS in Biomedical Science in 2014, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to continue to explore my research projects as a research technologist in the AOIP. My work in this lab inspires my pursuit of a PhD degree in the field of Neuroscience. My hobbies include playing basketball, cycling, and fishing.
