Research



With a team of collaborators, my work is concentrated on developing and adapting new psychophysical methods for evaluating preclinical and early glaucoma in addition to the progression of established glaucoma and testing quantitative models to relate glaucomatous functional defects to ganglion cell damage.
In addition, I am responsible for industry sponsored clinical trials to develop reference data for the advancement of optical coherence tomography scanning devices used in the management of patients with glaucoma.
