"I'm particularly interested in diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration and uveitis. I also enjoy performing cataract surgeries and involving in the education of residents. I've been working on many research projects since my residency. A couple examples are imaging features of choroidal melanoma, artificial intelligence in diabetic retinopathy, angiography and flare correlation in uveitis."
