Research interests

Neural development and regeneration, and disease modelling and treatment screening

Using the zebrafish model for visual neuroscience: Understanding gene networks during vertebrate development and pro-regenerative signals that drive adult nerve cell regeneration, modelling human visual disorders and screening for treatment strategies.

  • Retinal development
  • Regeneration in the adult central nervous system
  • Glaucoma
  • Myopia

Research projects

  • Therapeutic capacity of Australian plant derived antioxidants on visual disorders via gene expression modulation using zebrafish visual system as a model - led with Paolin Caceres Velez.
