Research interests

My research focuses on optimizing the use of optical coherence tomography and visual field examinations to understand, diagnose and manage glaucoma.

My favourite data analysis tools are R (www.r-project.org) and RStudio (www.rstudio.com). R is incredibly powerful but may be difficult to learn at the beginning. I appreciate the support of DataCamp (www.datacamp.com), which provides great resources to help students learn R easier and faster.
