He has been teaching general and physiological optics, computational physics, and signal processing for the past 15 years at post-graduate level while working on laser-tissue interaction, the measurement of mechanical and optical properties of the eye, and surgical lasers. He has worked also in Murcia, Spain for 3 years where he investigated imaging and diagnostic methods in ophthalmology, 2-photon microscopy and in-vivo optical characterization of ocular tissues. He is currently Head of Research at the Athens Eye Hospital, Athens, Greece, focusing on the development of diagnostic and surgical methods in ophthalmology as well as for the design of novel intraocular lenses. He has developed various devices that are now commercial in ophthalmology including surgical instruments, diagnostic diagnostic and intraocular lenses. His research interests include straylight phenomena in vision and optical metrology in the eye.
