After completing my Bachelor of Science in Optometry at Aston University, Birmingham in 2010, I returned to pursue a PhD investigating new ways of evaluating premium intraocular lenses. I then spent two and a half years working as a Research Optometrist at Moorfields Eye Hospital, London working on a NIHR funded, University College London (UCL) sponsored multi-centre clinical trial. In 2017, I returned to Aston University to take up a post as Research Fellow.
