Research Overview:

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.


Teaching Overview:

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 and practical sessions. I also supervise ‘Primary Care Clinics’ in which third year students deliver sight tests to members of the public, as well as second year ‘Investigative Techniques Clinics’.
