Research interests

My main research interests are focused on the development of advanced biomedical imaging and image processing techniques, mainly non-invasive, in-vivo imaging. More specifically, I am interested in retinal imaging to study complications related to eye pathologies. Currently learning Optical Coherence Tomography based imaging.

Techniques, methods & infrastructure

Development of Optical Coherence Tomography techniques for retinal imaging in Mouse model.
