In addition, One of my supervisors was from the Australian National University, one of the top-ranked research-intensive Universities in Australia and the world. I am currently pursuing a PhD project investigating different protocols to stabilise the cornea by crosslinking, in collaboration with Mr David O’Brart (St. Thomas’ Hospital, London).
