I am conducting a research project to determine whether antioxidant therapy can be an effective treatment in dominant optic atrophy. This inherited eye disease begins in childhood and can lead to drastic loss of vision. My study should prove informative to those families deciding on possible treatments for their condition.
I have taught many undergraduate and postgraduate students throughout my research career, mainly on a one-to-one basis. In 2009 I solely planned and organized an MSc lab-based project, and was directly responsible for the candidate's supervision throughout the year. I was responsible for supervision of a research technician for many years.
