Professor of Ophthalmology, Department of Ophthalmology
Co-Director, Mobility Enhancement and Vision Rehabilitation Center of Excellence
Moakley Scholar in Aging Eye Research
Dr. Peli's research spans the interface between engineering and ophthalmic / vision research. Specifically, he tries to understand how we see in the context of low vision rehabilitation. The application of his basic research findings fuels the development and evaluation of novel vision aids and methods for low vision rehabilitation. For instance, he developed a metric for contrast in complex images that permits quantitative specification of contrast in images, which has been widely adopted. His research also includes eye movement analysis, binocular vision, image processing, image communications, and optics. His most recent work in low vision focuses on mobility and devices for mobility, including pedestrian mobility and driving.
