My career to date has been a fortuitous journey from a desire to do medicine to a pursuit of academic research. As a first-year university student, I was required to design and complete simple experiments regarding cell metabolism and development. This sparked an interest in research that, over the following summer and two school years, led me to a research group looking to identify drug-able targets for common bacterial pathogens. At the Medical College of Wisconsin, PhD, introduced me to Prof Jay Neitz, who showed me I was colourblind, and hooked me on visual neuroscience. My PhD used commercial and custom built vision-testing devices to study structure/function/development of the human visual system. During my PhD, I had the oppurtunity to do a 1 year Marie Curie Fellowship in an applied optics group at the NUI-Galway. After my PhD, I went to the departments of Ophthalmology and Photonics at Duke University for a postdoctoral fellowship looking to integrate novel 3D imaging technology into a surgical microscope. After a great learning experience, I was given the opportunity to help build an imaging group to at UCL-IoO and MEH.

Research Summary
As light passes through the eye, it passes through several layers before landing on the light detectors called photoreceptors found at the back of the eye. These layers of processors and detectors are called the retina. A patch of retina at the centre of gaze is called the macula and is responsible for the most detailed quality of vision. My research is focused on understanding how this specialised structure is formed, how vision works, and understanding the mechanisms behind degeneration in hopes of identifying mechanism for vision recovery. My group uses a mixture of commercial and custom built imaging devices in our pursuit of understanding the human visual system.
