Professional Aspirations:

  • The PhD topic includes the effects of acquired brain injury on the visual system and the utility of visual findings as key indicators in post-concussion syndrome. Special areas of interest involve eye movements, electrophysiology, color vision, and the near triad (accommodation, convergence, pupil function). Future plans include development of new evidence based diagnostic and therapeutic mechanisms for concussion assessment and treatment.
