Dr Ehsan Vaghefi
University of Auckland
School of Optometry and Vision Sciences
Dr Vaghefi completed his PhD at Auckland Bioengineering Institute (ABI), and in close collaboration with the Department of Optometry and Vision Sciences (DOVS). Through this research he has become an expert in non-invasive dynamic imaging and imaging-guided computational modelling of ocular tissues. His PhD work led to a number of publications in high ranked peer reviewed international journals, through which a sophisticated model for the fluid dynamics of the ocular lens is presented. He currently holds a lecturer position in the DOVS and also as part of his research activities, he is further enhancing our knowledge of physiological and optical interconnections in the ocular lens. To be able to do this, Ehsan has strong links to the ABI as well as the Department of Physiology. He is also an active member of New Zealand National Eye Centre (NZ-NEC) which is a collaboration of Optometry, Ophthalmology and Bioengineering departments to boost the vision related research in New Zealand.
