BIO:

I am an Honours student who joined the Vision Lab at the John Curtin School of Medical Research, ANU in 2020. My research so far has been focusing on optimising photobiomodulation therapy in preventing or treating retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), which, is an ocular disease highly associated with retinal neovascularisation of preterm babies. We proposed that 670nm red light can restore the normal retinal vasculature growth of the premature babies, so as to regress the pathology that follows.
