Christina Schwarz is a Research Group Leader at the Institute for Ophthalmic Research at the University of Tübingen, Germany. She earned MSc degrees in Physics and Biomedical Optics from Heidelberg University, Germany and a PhD in Vision Science from the University of Murcia, Spain. Her research interest is focused on the microscopic structure of the retina and retinal physiology in health and disease. She uses advanced optical techniques such as two-photon adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscopy to investigate the retina in a noninvasive way. Her research is currently supported by an ECR Starting Grant. She serves as Topical Editor for Optics Letters in the content area of Vision & Adaptive Optics and as Chair of Optica’s Technical Group Vision.
