SKILL Card Mockup

Brabyn Lab

My lab is the home for the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center funded by NIDILRR with additional support from SKERI and other agencies. Together we address problems of blindness and visual impairment, particularly problems faced by our target populaiton that may be amenable to technological solutions.

Projects that I am personally involved in include the development and application of new tests for the assessment of functional vision, and studies of the problems and solutions of dual sensory loss.
