A Computer-Based Method to Analyze In-Vivo Human Lens Morphology and Density
Using Scheimpflug Photography
(University of Illinois at Chicago – Fall, 2008)
- Created a brand new way of visualizing in-vivo anterior segment ocular anatomy by creating 3D digital models of the eye from Scheipflug photographs. 3D models proved useful in studying anatomical lens sutures.
- Tested for a correlation between visual function and lens optical density. A statistically significant indirect correlation between contrast sensitivity and nuclear and cortical density (Pearson correlation, p < 0.05) was found.
- Data was collected from patients at ophthalmic clinics at Rush and Northwestern University hospitals.
- Was honored to speak at the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) annual international convention in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
Zoology 699 Directed Studies in Zoology
(University of Wisconsin- Madison – Fall, 2002)
- Studied skeletal proportion in relation to behavioral differences between the Red-footed

- Received award for a presentation poster with the best use of graphics
