Staff Profile

Carla Black

Research Assistant


I am currently working as a Research Assistant on the ASTEROID project, in a validation study of the ASTEROID game - a fun, new 3D vision test.

As part of the ASTEROID team, I am collaborating with schools and nurseries across the region to collect stereovision data from 1,000 children; as well as delivering public outreach activities and engaging young children in science.

Before moving into research, I worked as an Optometrist and then in business, in financial services.

As well as my long-term interest in vision sciences, I have become extremely interested in brain development in children since becoming a mum. I hope to pursue a career in neuroscience research.
