My research work has broadly focussed on the neurobiology of visual function. This has encompassed work on restoring visual function using cellular transplantations and genetic modifications, as well as investigation of retinal control of irradiance detection tasks.   This research has gained me diverse experience in many types of experimental techniques: molecular biology (QPCR, RNAseq); histology (immunohistochemistry, confocal microscopy); cell culture (human embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells, retinal progenitor cells, differentiation of neurons); and electrophysiology (electroretinogram recordings and multi-electrode arrays.
