Personal profile


I received a Bachelor of Science in Optometry from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU). After completing my PhD study at the same institution, I worked as a postdoctoral fellow and then a research associate at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in the United States. After that, I returned to my alma mater as assistant professor and I am currently an associate professor in the School of Optometry, PolyU.

My research interest lies in the areas of aqueous humor dynamics and glaucoma pathophysiology. My research has been focused on cellular mechanisms responsible for modulating the rate of aqueous humor secretion, outflow facility and intraocular pressure (IOP). I have adopted an integrated approach using both in vitro and in vivo animal models to investigate the regulation of aqueous humor dynamics and its relationship to IOP. My goal is to unravel the mechanisms and signaling cascades underlying the regulation of ion transport and fluid dynamics in the mammalian eyes. Recently, we have also looked into the potential therapeutic functions of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in eye disease management.
