Research areas: malignant melanoma of the uveal tract; investigation of the genetic alterations common to these tumours using techniques including cytogenetics; study of in vitro tumour behaviour to identify why certain tumours behave more aggressively; eye injuries in non-accidental injury in infancy; retinoblastoma: cell turnover; apoptosis; cell differentiation and angiogenesis; testing visual and binocular function in children; investigations into eye movements in the absence of normal binocular vision; the orthoptic effects of use of or withdrawal from opiates; integration of visual cues.
