Dr Geoff Sampson
This person does not currently hold a position at QUT.
Geoff Sampson is a Senior Research Associate working with the Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation (IHBI) and the School of Optometry at QUT.
Geoff completed a Bachelor of Science in Optometry at the University of Melbourne and had an extensive period as a clinical optometrist in Victoria, Western and South Australia before returning to post graduate study in 2000. He completed a PhD in 2004 in the Department Of Optometry and Vision Sciences at the University of Melbourne, looking at the efficacy of intervention for sub-optimally learning children with visual information processing dysfunction.
He has since been employed as a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Melbourne with involvement in investigations of structure and function in glaucoma, contrast sensitivity changes in migraine, visual attention, and paediatric vision development. He has recently completed a post-doctoral research appointment at QUT investigating retinal anatomy and visual function changes associated with diabetic neuropathy. He has concurrently maintained an interest in clinical optometry via undergraduate teaching and part-time practice.
Geoff's current role at QUT involves paediatric vision research and clinical teaching.
