Sarah's main research interest is improving the detection of abnormal vision development in children using non-standard images. She's undertaking her doctoral studies under the supervision of Dr Sarah J Waugh, Dr Monika A Formankiewicz and Prof John Siderov. Sarah took up a lectureship in the Vision and Hearing Sciences department at Anglia Ruskin University in September 2012.
During her undergraduate studies, Sarah won a Nuffield Undergraduate Research Bursary to do a summer research project entitled Binocular summation for images defined by luminance or contrast within Anglia Vision Research. The project was undertaken under the supervision of Dr Sarah J Waugh and the results were presented at an international conference (VSS) in America in July 2009.
After her undergraduate studies, Sarah was awarded a University Graduate Teaching Assistantship scholarship to undertake her doctoral studies into how a more sensitive test for amblyopia could be designed, under the supervision of Dr Sarah J Waugh, Dr Monika A Formankiewicz and Prof John Siderov.
In the second year of her PhD, Sarah won first prize for a talk given at our Sixth Annual Student Research Conference. Her main research interest is the development of more sensitive tools using non-standard images for improving detection of amblyopia in children.
