Current Research Interests


My work at the AOIP revolves around studying Achromatopsia (ACHM), a genetic disorder characterized by loss of color vision, low visual acuity, and nystagmus due to dysfunctional cone photoreceptors. I aim to characterize the clinical progression of this disease using adaptive optics and biometric measurements. Additionally, I am working on developing a reliable clinical outcome measure for ACHM patients receiving gene therapy using a photosensitivity tester.

Brief Biographical Information


During my undergraduate career at Northwestern University, I was fortunate enough to work in a neurobiology lab studying the effects of estrogen on synaptic transmission in the rat model. Using various techniques, including 3D reconstruction and EM imaging, I realized that I love the scientific process and the ability to introduce novel information into the world. The AOIP caught my eye (pun intended) because the translational nature of the work harmonized my interests in medicine, incredible imaging research, and patient care. In my spare time, I love experimenting in the kitchen and sharing the results with family and friends!
