I am a postdoctoral fellow working under the supervision of Dr. Preeti Verghese. My work at Smith-Kettlewell, funded by the Franco-American Fulbright commission, will aim at improving visual search in age-related macular degeneration patients by increasing scotoma awareness and optimizing their eye movement strategies. Previously, I completed my Ph.D. at University of Lille (France), in which I investigated oculomotor learning and the temporal plasticity of the saccadic system through behavioral (psychophysical and eye-tracking) methods and reinforcement techniques.
