Relevant Key Words:
Cornea, sclera, eye, collagen fibril, x-ray diffraction, biomechanics, non-linear laser-scanning microscopy, electron microscopy.
Research Expertise relevant to tissue engineering & repair:
I am studying the structure of the cornea and sclera using X-ray scattering, non-linear laser-scanning microscopy and electron microscopy. Of particular interest to me is the relationship between extracellular matrix organisation and corneo-scleral material properties, and their alteration due to disease and surgery.
