Personal profile

Research Interests

My research portfolio is broadly based around the role of nutrition in ocular disease, but has included the development and evaluation of ophthalmic instrumentation, clinical trials, the development of hand-held technologies for people with low vision, and investigations of the psychology of nutritional behaviour. This range of research has been made possible through my collaborations with engineers, computer scientists, clinicians and health psychologists, and is linked by the aim to impact on the lives of those people living with ocular diseases.
