Kate Grieve is the Scientific Director of the Paris Eye Imaging unit.
Since 2014 she has been responsible for development and application of in vivo high resolution ocular imaging technologies at the Quinze Vingts National Ophthalmology Hospital and Vision Institute. She is a leading specialist in both full field optical coherence tomography, in collaboration with Claude Boccara and team at the Langevin Institute, and in adaptive optics technology, as a postdoc with Austin Roorda at UC Berkeley and Martin Booth at University of Oxford, and in current collaboration with Ethan Rossi at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and Serge Meimon at ONERA. She has successfully completed and is currently principal or co-investigator on various ANR, European Research Council, FFB and internally funded grants to develop optical imaging technologies for ophthalmology and vision applications. In addition to her academic activities, she has worked in industry as an optical engineer, commercializing innovative retinal imaging technologies. In 2020 Kate was awarded a 5 year ERC Consolidator Grant to develop optical imaging of retinal function for gene and cell therapies. In 2021 she was named INSERM Research Director at the Vision Institute.
