My research interests involve measuring the visual field in retinal disease. In particular, I am interested in the investigation of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), in terms of monitoring the progression of visual loss, using perimetry and imaging techniques.
My teaching duties include the role of module leader for the ‘Ocular Pharmacology’ module for the second year undergraduate students. I am responsible for organising the course, designing the structure of the course and writing and delivering the lectures. I also supervise ‘Primary Care Clinics’ in which third year students deliver sight tests to members of the public, as well as second year ‘Pre-Clinic Refraction Labs’.
