Current student supervision:
PhD Students: 
  • Antimicrobial contact lenses: microbes at the ocular surface
  • Mode of action and activity of antimicrobial peptides
Research Areas:
  1. Contact lens-related adverse events, particularly infiltrative events, development of novel antimicrobial agents, antimicrobial peptides, mechanism and activity of antimicrobial peptides, aetiology of development of keratitis
  2. Anterior ocular surface and tear film, tear lipid layer, effect of preservatives and surfactants on ocular comfort
  3. Development of antibiotic resistance, novel antimicrobial strategies for resistant pathogen, immobilisation of peptides and development of antimicrobial biomaterials

Models include: Laboratory experiments, animal models, Randomized controlled trials (RCT)
