Our lab is developing state-of-the-art experimental and computational tools for the characterisation of soft tissue biomechanics.
Our research is using biomechanics for personalised medicine in opthalmology. Our methods also find applications beyond the field of ophthalmology such as cardiology and orthopaedics.
In vivo biomechanics can only be achieved using state-of-the-art medical imaging equipment. We are currently interested in the development and applications of optical coherence tomography.
A 3D tracking algorithm has been developed to map 3D deformations of the optic nerve head in patients.
Compensation techniques are used to improve the detection of the lamina cribrosa.
Microstructure is measured using small angle light scattering.
Compensation techniques are used to improve the visibility of coronary artery plaques.
Strong fiber ring in the peripapillary sclera reduced the strain level near the scleral canal.
A single index that quantifies overall LC shape in an intuitive way.
Finite element anaysis and in vivo OCT imaging were used to investigate the optic nerve head deformations induced by eye movements
