My research expertise is in sensory physiology--specifically visual physiology and psychophysics. My research program generally complements and extends my clinical role as the director of the visual function testing service for the department, which employs electrophysiological measures: electroretinogram (ERG), electro-oculogram (EOG) and visual evoked potential (VEP) and psychophysical measures: color vision, dark adaptation, contrast sensitivity. In general, I use these non-invasive measures to characterize the effects of alteration or perturbation of the visual system from its normal optimal state.
