Research summary

My main research interests are in photoreceptor development, health and disc renewal at UCL Institute of Ophthalmology and the development of new diagnostic protocols to diagnose Primary Cilia Dyskinesia (PCD) at the Royal Brompton Hospital. I am currently working on the arrangement of mitochondria and the uptake and trafficking of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in photoreceptors, as well as co-supervising a project focussed on the development of a machine learning system to detect ciliary defects in PCD.
