Research Expertise and Interest
My work mainly concerns refractive development and myopia (short-sightedness). My research involves cell and tissue culture as well as animal models and humans and is directed towards:
- Understanding the mechanisms underlying eye growth (scleral) regulation including the role of intraocular pressure and myopia.
- Developing myopia control strategies, using optical, pharmacological and tissue engineering approaches.
I also am interested more generally in ocular therapeutic and public health aspects of ocular disease.
