Current research interests


My research interests are centered on improving the performance of our ophthalmic adaptive optics (AO) systems. These include implementing better wavefront sensing methods as well as designing the next generation of ophthalmic AO systems. In addition, I am working on a tunable ocular achromatizing lens which will enable multi-spectral imaging  of the retina.  Finally, I assist other members of the lab in the collection and analysis of data used to study numerous retinal pathologies.

Education


Undergraduate: BS, Allegheny College
Graduate: University of Rochester, Rochester NY (2008- )

Brief Biographical Information


After graduating with a BS in physics from Allegheny College in May 2008, I embarked on an adventure at the University of Rochester’s Institute of Optics as a PhD student. In 2009, I was fortunate to join Dr. Alfredo Dubra’s lab as a graduate student. While at Rochester, we recorded some success including the ability to resolve rod photoreceptors in vivo. The latest chapter in my adventure brings me to the Advanced Ocular Imaging Program here at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Surrounded by great mentors, colleagues and staff with various areas of expertise, I look forward to a successful future.
