PhD thesis defense Malavika Nambiar

The ARTORG Center congratulates Malavika Nambiar for her successful PhD thesis defense on 23 November 2023! Malavika has studied the “Material Characterization of the Cornea” to pave the way “Towards Personalized Refractive Interventions” at the Computational Bioengineering Lab. For this work, she used both experimental and numerical approaches to unravel the mechanical complexities and morphological nuances of corneal tissue and thus inform future surgical techniques.
