Research Interests

  • Developing a better understanding of the relationship between structure and function in the visual system — both in health and disease
  • Applying high-resolution imaging tools (adaptive optics and optical coherence tomography) to the study of the human retina
  • Comparative color vision
  • Foveal development
  • Visual neuroscience
  • Behavioral aspects of human color vision (normal and aberrant)

I take a multidisciplinary approach to study the human visual system. I am interested in developing a better understanding of the relationship between structure and function in the visual system — both in health and disease. My primary focus is on applying high-resolution imaging tools (adaptive optics and optical coherence tomography) to the study of the human retina. In addition, I have broad interests in comparative color vision, foveal development, visual neuroscience, and behavioral aspects of human color vision (normal and aberrant).

The Advanced Ocular Imaging Program (AOIP), located in the Eye Institute, serves as a local, national, and international resource for advancing the field of ocular imaging and for translating adaptive optics technology into a clinically relevant imaging tool. More information about this program is available on the AOIP website.
