Biomedical Mechanical Engineering in Ophthalmology
Improving surgical outcomes for ptosis suspension using dynamic and passive engineering solutions.
The ultimate goal of this project is about improving functioning in patients who suffers from ptosis associated with poor Levator Palpebrae Superioris (LPS) function.
Felix graduated from King’s College London in 2010 with a BSc (Hons) in Biomedical Sciences and MSc in Biology of Vision in 2011 at the Institute of Ophthalmology, University College London.
After graduation, he spent one and a half years working in the optical industry and returned to UCL in 2013 as a research student investigating the blinking dynamics of human eyes and characterisation of different ptosis suspension materials. His research is fully funded by UCL IMPACT studentship and herald a unique collaboration between Moorfields Eye Hospital, London and UCL Mechanical Engineering.
