Special Interests:

Early diagnosis of glaucoma and its progression

Public and international health aspect of glaucoma

Research Goals:

My research focuses on developing methods for early diagnosis and early detection of progression of glaucoma using structural changes in the optic nerve head and retinal layers. My current line of research includes: 1) Classification of forecasting of glaucomatous structural change using probabilistic multivariate models; 2) Glaucoma diagnosis and detection of its progression using combination of hemodynamic and metabolic changes with structural damage.
