Personal profile


My research focuses on novel instrumentation and methods for translational medical research to make a difference in human health. To do this, I have two workstreams. The first stream is the design and construction of non-invasive imaging instruments based on optical coherence tomography (OCT) for biology and ophthalmology for non-invasive angiography and the study of blood flow. The second stream is to develop standardised workflows for ophthalmic image and data analysis and quantification.

I have a track record of successful research in universities, medical research institutes, and in executing research projects for the industry. I have spent 12 years working in teams of computer scientists, clinicians, and biologists. This joining of disciplines has resulted in important advances in ophthalmology and neurology. Beyond research, I am passionate about science communication, mentoring students of all stages, and developing a more inclusive society.
