Research interests

Ocular Biometry - The long term goal is to expand the range of in vivo ocular component measurements on human eyes; measurement of internal ocular surface toricity (posterior corneal surface, anterior and posterior lens surfaces), retinal contour and ocular component misalignment.
Visual Aspects of Driving - One line of enquiry investigates the relationship between vision and safe driving; considering the relative merits of tests for basic visual functions versus higher order perceptual processing.

Employment

Mark graduated from the University College of North Wales, Bangor in 1983 with a degree in Zoology.

His postgraduate studies were carried out in the Department of Vision Sciences at Aston University. Here, he examined the relationship between ocular biometry, involving development of an ultrasonic ophthalmophakometric technique, and peripheral refraction under the supervision of Derek Barnes. His thesis entitled 'An Optical Study of Human Ocular Dimensions' led to the award of a PhD in 1987. During the last year of his postgraduate studies, he became a research assistant on a project, carried out at Aston and funded by the TRRL, looking into road direction sign optimisation.

Mark then studied for a degree in Ophthalmic Optics (Optometry) for which he graduated with first class honours in 1989 and became a registered member of the College of Optometrists in 1990.

He was appointment as a lecturer at Aston in 1990 and promoted to senior lecturer in 2007. Since then, he has continued his research interests in the fields of ocular biometry and the visual aspects of driving. He has been the optometry admissions tutor since 1996.
