- Assistant Professor, Small Animal Clinical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences
I am most interested in developing a career path in translational research, allowing me to bridge basic science findings to practical applications in the clinic in order to enhance the care and well-being of veterinary patients. As a comparative ophthalmologist, my professional interests are broadened by the wide variety of clinically-relevant ocular conditions encountered in canine, feline, equine and exotic animal species. This includes advancements in the treatment of cataracts, diseases of the retina, and pathogenesis of glaucoma with a strong emphasis in ocular pathology. By linking the clinical features of ocular disease with their associated histopathologic changes, I can provide a unique perspective in the interpretation and understanding of ocular disease processes in veterinary patients and their relevance to comparable human disorders.
