Nikita smiles for the camera

Congratulations, Dr Thomas

The Nystagmus Network is sending huge congratulations to the newly qualified Dr Nikita Thomas. Dr Thomas achieved her PhD this month.

Nikita is well known to members of the Nystagmus Network for her engaging personality and confident presentations on her latest nystagmus research.

On World Sight Day 2020, Nikita was named an Eye Health Hero by the IAPB (the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness). She was nominated by the Nystagmus Network and her senior colleagues at the School of Optometry and Vision Sciences, Cardiff University for her innovative work in perimetry.

We’re sure that Nikita has a brilliant nystagmus research career ahead of her. With her PhD behind her she can now concentrate on her post-doctoral career.

Nikita says: “I never thought this day would actually come! I passed my PhD viva and I’m officially Dr Thomas. I was just an average kid at school who raised eyebrows when she chose science at A-levels, and now I’m a fully-fledged scientist. Amazing feeling.”

Congratulations, Dr Thomas!
