My research involves psychophysical assessments of human sensory systems in order to understand the influence of environmental changes on neural functioning and subsequent impact on quality of life. My work thus far has focused on lifestyle habits, mainly dietary intake of carotenoids found throughout the visual system, and relevant implications for the loss or gain of visual function. I am also interested in characterizing visual symptoms in patients with concussive injury. Such measures may then be used as a benchmark for assessing efficacy of rehabilitative interventions.
