Research Area: Biomedical optics with a focus on optical coherence tomography (OCT) and ocular imaging
My research focuses on the use of polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) and custom scanning patterns for retinal imaging of healthy volunteers and subjects with various retinal diseases. In close collaboration with clinicians from the Department of Ophthalmology and Optometry, we are investigating new methods and biomarkers for early diagnosis.
