My research interests have always been in the field of vision science and I have worked on developing and investigating gene therapy treatments for severe inherited retinal dystrophies along studies into understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms behind age-related macular degeneration, uveitis, stem cells and AAV biology. My current focus is on creating research platforms in the area of retinal degeneration, gene therapy and cell death mechanisms.
