Current Research Projects

Developing the application of Raman spectroscopy in the non-invasive detection of early stage age related macular degeneration. Raman spectroscopy is a non-destructive, non-invasive laser based method, currently used to measure carotenoid levels in-vivo in the fovea. I am developing a modified Raman spectrometer capable of measuring advanced glycation and lipoxidation endproducts on the collagens of the Bruch’s membrane and sclera.

Methodology

  • Non-resonant Raman Spectroscopy
  • Principal Component Analysis/ Singular Value Decomposition
  • Partial-least Squares Regression
  • Discriminant Analysis
  • Developing novel noise-insensitive data processing methodologies
