Research Overview

My main research interests are the biophysical properties and structural biology of the cornea and sclera. I am using x-ray scattering and microscopic imaging to investigate the factors that govern corneal transparency and refractive status, and their compromise in disease and surgery. I am also researching the structural biology and biomechanical function of the sclera and optic nerve head, and investigating their role in the development of glaucoma.

Teaching Overview

I am module leader for the BSc Optometric Physics (OP0204) and Research & Study Skills (OP1204) modules. I also teach on the MSc Research & Study Skills (OPT7108) module.
