Significant expertise in retinal imaging and in colour vision, enabling assessment of structural and functional phenotypes across a variety of retinal conditions. Recent work has focused on establishing relationships between genotype and phenotype in patients with hereditary cone disorders, such as achromatopsia and X-linked cone dysfunction. Long-term career goals are to establish relationships between photoreceptor loss and colour vision in patients with degenerative retinal diseases using highly sensitive imaging and psychophysical techniques. Understanding this relationship will provide much needed information about the time course of disease, as well as having important implications for postreceptoral mechanisms. The principles can then be directly applied clinically to detect early signs of retinal disease, monitor progression and assess treatment efficacy.

Well-established international profile, with numerous collaborators and contacts across the U.S., the U.K., and Ireland. Experience in managing the strategic direction of a global organisation by serving on the Board of Trustees for the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO). Socially-engaged and highly motivated, striving to improve skills and self in all undertakings, whether it be lecturing, disseminating research at international conferences, playing piano, or cooking at home.
