Current research interests


I am an MD/PhD student completing my graduate school years in the Advanced Ocular Imaging Program. I am currently working on characterizing Achromatopsia, a disease of low visual acuity and no color vision, using Adaptive Optics imaging. My project involves analyzing photoreceptor structure to define retinal alterations that occur in this condition, and whether there are any changes over time. This project is a natural history study in preparation for gene therapy trials to treat this disease.

Brief Biographical Information


I completed my undergraduate training in physics at Marquette University in 2010. I then came to MCW joining the Medical Scientist Training Program to pursue both an MD and PhD degree. After doing research in functional MRI brain imaging as an undergraduate and during research rotations at MCW, I came to the AOIP lab for a research rotation to gain experience with a different kind of medical imaging. I found I was interested in continuing to work with optical imaging during my rotation in the lab and joined the group in the summer of 2012 to do my graduate work.

 

My favorite structure in the eye


Photoreceptors, retinal pigment epithelium
