Research Interests

My research interests involve measures of visual function 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 functional and imaging techniques.  Recent studies have evaluated the use of microperimetry with a focus on clinical interpretation with respect to normative data.  Current work includes the assessment of the relationship between vision-related quality of life outcomes with clinical measures such as microperimetry, in individuals with AMD.
