Dr. Moskowitz has been a faculty member at the college since 2003. She is the laboratory instructor for the Binocular Vision and Ocular Motility course and for Glare and Light Measurement. Outside of the college, Dr. Moskowitz is a research associate in ophthalmology at Children’s Hospital Boston and an instructor in ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School.
At Children’s Hospital, Dr. Moskowitz conducts research in conjunction with Drs. Anne Fulton and Ronald Hansen on the effect of premature birth on the function and structure of the infant retina using electrophysiological recording (ERG), psychophysical procedures, and adaptive optics imaging. For this research, Dr. Moskowitz is a co-investigator on the National Eye Institute funded study, Photoreceptor Function in Retinopathy of Prematurity.
Dr. Moskowitz’s additional research interests include the assessment of retinal function in children with congenital retinal abnormalities such as achromatopsia, congenital stationary night blindness, Usher syndrome, craniosynostosis, and albinism. Her studies have resulted in the publication of numerous scholarly articles in the journals Progress in Retinal and Eye Research, Investigative Ophthalmology & Vision Science, Vision Research, Documenta Ophthalmologica, and Archives of Ophthalmology, among others. Dr. Moskowitz is a member of both the Association for Research and Vision and Ophthalmology and the International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology and Vision. She reviews manuscripts for several journals.
Dr. Moskowitz earned her PhD in experimental psychology from Northeastern University in 1974 and subsequently completed postdoctoral fellowships in the Infant Vision Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and in the Electrophysiology Laboratory at Pennsylvania College of Optometry. She earned her Doctor of Optometry through The New England College of Optometry’s accelerated program and received the Scholastic Achievement Award in 1993.
