Research student, School of Optometry and Vision Sciences

Research Overview

I started my PhD in 2016 with supervision from Professor Keith Meek within the developmental and structural biophysics department in the school of optometry. My research is focused on 3-D structural analysis of mammalian corneal development. In particular, my research focuses on understanding corneal elastic fibre development, comparing physiological corneal development to a model of Marfan syndrome.
