Current research interests

I perform research on outer retinal architecture in closed-globe blunt ocular trauma.  I also assess outer retinal architecture in early diabetes using adaptive optics retinal imaging.  I am interested in diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, ocular trauma, high myopia and heritable retinal diseases.
