BOptom (Hons), BSci
I am a UNSW Sydney alumnus who graduated with the University Medal from the School of Optometry and Vision Science. I have worked as a clinical optometrist in both private and corporate practice, with interests in advanced multimodal ocular imaging, managing ocular surface and tear film dysfunction as well as collaborative multidisciplinary patient care.
I am currently conducting my PhD research in the topic of in-vivo corneal confocal microscopy and chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy supervised by Dr Maria Markoulli, Professor Arun V Krishnan and Professor David Goldstein. The program is undertaken at the School of Optometry and Vision Science in collaboration with the IN FOCUS Study cancer research group based at the Prince of Wales Hospital (https://www.infocusstudy.org.au/).
My research focuses on utilising the ocular surface as a more accessible way of detecting systemic issues such as nerve damage from chronic metabolic conditions or neurotoxicity. More specifically, my investigations include:
