Retinal imaging expert
My expertise is in performing high-resolution imaging of neuronal function in the living eye with adaptive optics ophthalmoscopy. Previously, I lead a study evaluating therapies for restoring vision in eye diseases that cause blindness. I have extensive hands-on experience in electrophysiological techniques, neuronal signal recordings and analysis, electronics, and 3D design and prototyping.
My perfect career
Formally trained as a neuroscientist, I have a passion for 3D printing and electronics. One recent example for these extracurricular skills is in the design and construction of a mouse holder for non-invasive retinal imaging (see gallery). Factors that motivate me are the pursuit of cutting edge science, working in well complemented cohesive multidisciplinary team, and being appreciated by my peers and managers for my quality work and initiative. An outstanding aspect of my personality is to identify processes in the workplace or everyday life that can be made more efficient and effective. Examples include: automating my home blinds to open and close according to sunrise and sunset, designing 3D printed targets to streamline alignment of optical systems, and writing programs to carry out common data processing steps that were previous done manually.
