Postgraduate opportunity

We will shortly be recruiting a postgraduate student for a PhD project evaluating the effect of visual impairment on activities of daily living, to be supervised by Dr Mat Timmis, Prof Shahina Pardhan and myself. The post will be ideal for an optometrist, and we’llĀ  be looking for someone with bags of enthusiasm, and obviously an interest in visual impairment. A job spec will follow soon, but if you are interested in the position, please get in touch.


Stylish jackets

The Cambridge News have also picked up on our research on drivers’ acuity. And yes, I know that isn’t a 3m working distance, it’s just how the photographer wanted it. And unfortunately no, we didn’t get to keep the jackets!

BBC Radio Cambridgeshire breakfast!

Something a bit different to start the day today today – I was interviewed on the BBC Radio Cambridegshire Breakfast Show by Jeremy Sallis, about testing taxi drivers’ vision (scroll through to about 2.54 for my bit!). Also managed to get in a plug for CamSight!
