Personal profile

Research interests

The group’s research entails an investigation of the ocular motor system as a means of developing an understanding of neurocognitive processes fundamental to normal human behaviour, and how these processes may be, or become, dysfunctional. The work combines a range of sophisticated approaches (ocular motor, neuropsychological and neuroimaging), and primarily explores (dys) function in human lesion and system disorders. Establishing the clinical utility of ocular motor measures is a primary goal of the research, translating research outcomes into clinical practice.

This entails developing and applying methods that can:

  • sensitively measure disease severity and evolution
  • evaluate the efficacy of treatment
  • advance our understanding of the neurobiological bases of phenotypically similar conditions.

Expertise related to UN Sustainable Development Goals
