RESEARCH INTERESTS: My work focuses on the molecular mechanisms that control the development of human photoreceptors (PRs).  I am interested in developmental changes that occur as PRs mature and become immobile, over a time when we discovered they switch from an axon extension, to a synaptogenesis phase.  I hope to leverage my findings to support the reintegration of transplanted PRs in neurodegenerative disorders of the eye.
