Honorary Clinical Research Associate
Specialty Registrar in Ophthalmology
Connie is currently in year four of her clinical specialty training in Ophthalmology at the Oxford Eye Hospital. She was educated at Oxford University (Magdalen College) and won the Martin Wronker prize at the end of her BA in Medical Sciences for the highest score achieved in Finals that year. During her undergraduate degree she undertook a research project with the laboratory of Professor Russell Foster, examining connexin expression in intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells of rodless/coneless mice. She graduated from Oxford in 2011 with several merits and her BMBCh. She began specialty training in Ophthalmology in 2015 but has continued to pursue research interests. Her work establishing testing protocols for mesopic microperimetry has won the EuRetina winter meeting Best Poster award in 2017.
Connie’s interests outside medicine include travel, and she has volunteered and undertaken elective studies in India, Cuba, Guatemala, and Ghana, and spent two years working as a house officer and later as an ophthalmology registrar in New Zealand.
