Overview

Research Overview


In my PhD I am using basic and clinical psychophysics to investigate visual perception in patients with glaucoma, particularly how they perceive objects in cluttered scenes, and how this relates to their visual field sensitivity as measured clinically. I am also using a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods to investigate how such abilities relate to quality of life.
