Research Overview

My research interests have focused on clinical investigation of common ocular pathologies, such as diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma.  Doctoral and early post-doctoral research centred on the objective and subjective assessment of visual function, with emphasis on clinical visual electrophysiology.   These included the photopic negative response (PhNR) and S-cone ERG, amongst other more standard photopic and scotopic ERG and visual evoked potential techniques.  More recently, I have been investigating clinically detectable structural changes in the optic nerve head (ONH) in glaucoma using novel laboratory long wavelength optical coherence tomography.    

Teaching Overview

I am joint Course Co-ordinator for the Preliminary Year at the School of Optometry and Vision Sciences.  My teaching responsibilities therefore concentrate on this part of the course, where I am module leader for OP0202, Systemic Pathology for Optometry and OP0205, Introductory Optometry.  I also contribute to OP0206, Written and Communication Skills.
