Ian is a SCREDS clinical lecturer in ophthalmology with an interest in retinal vascular disease, retinal imaging and analysis, and ocular infection. His interest in clinical research began with the Apex expeditions to Bolivia and a project on ocular effects of high altitude. His PhD was spent in Malawi performing retinal fluorescein angiography on patients with paediatric cerebral malaria – an acute haematological parasitic disease with very strong associations between retinal and brain – and analysing associations with MRI brain. Current projects involve molecular imaging of the eye and analysis of high dimensional data. Outside work he enjoys the Scottish mountains and making pizza.
