Overview

One of the principal daily variations experienced by life on earth occurs within the visual environment, as we move from a world lit by starlight to one illuminated by bright midday sun. My goal is to understand how the mammalian visual system remains functional throughout this huge change, using information from the light environment and from the circadian clock.

My interests also lie in understanding how visual display technologies can be re-designed to gain control of the novel photoreceptor, melanopsin. My research has shown how a new type of visual display can be used to both optimise visual experience, and regulate the subconscious effects of light over the course of the day.
