My research project involves dealing with superficial lymphatics focusing in on the clinical issue of lymphatic oedema, which is the swelling in tissues due to the abnormal accumulation of tissue fluid brought on by the dysfunction of lymphatics in the area. This is a very common and debilitating condition affecting millions of people around the world. The issue is further compounded by the high costs and rarity of current diagnostic methods. The goal of my project is to develop of a low-cost device to measure and assess lymphatic dysfunction.”

My project focuses on utilising optical coherence tomography along with Python to automatically, and non-invasively, detect irregularities in artwork. This process helps identify the boundaries where the artwork has been previously restored and can help to determine its authenticity.
 
My Honours research is about detecting early the onset of Osteoarthritis using Polarisation Sensitive OCT.

Investigation of applying spectral domain optical coherence tomography to gastrointestinal imaging. This research is looking at ways OCT imaging can be used to help with diagnosis and general analysis of the gastrointestinal tract as well as studying various other biological tissues and creating new models to analyse results and combine OCT information with observations from spectroscopic imaging.
