PROFESSIONAL AFFILIATIONS AND SERVICE POSITIONS
My research interests lie in improving early detection, diagnosis and understanding of retinal disease, particularly macular degeneration. I am specifically interested in studying retinal remodeling - a process where the cells remaining in the diseased retina change their shape, connections & location. I am trying to detect remodelling with advanced eye imaging devices currently used in clinical practice by optometrists and ophthalmologists as this may help predict which individuals are at most risk of vision loss from macular degeneration. This can lead to better diagnosis and tailored management.
I also work to understand related photoreceptor degenerations such as Retinitis Pigmentosa as well as collaborate with bionic eye engineers at UNSW to design devices that account for remodelling and make them more effective at restoring sight advanced eye imaging technologies.
