Researcher interests: Biophysical, biochemical and physiological aspects of basic processes in vision: genetic dissection of phototransduction; bistable visual pigment systems; after-potentials in photoreceptors and second messengers in phototransduction; the molecular mechanism of retinal degeneration. Heterologous expression of gene products related to capacitative Ca2+ entry.
