Dr. Alberto de Castro
Host organization – Instituto de Óptica CSIC
Scientist in Charge – Prof. Susana Marcos
Fellowship duration – 2 years
Alberto de Castro is interested in imaging the human eye to understand its properties and behavior. With age, some vision is lost but the knowledge of the characteristics in young eyes can be used to design corrections.
As a PhD Student in Susana Marcos’ lab, he studied the gradient refractive index of the crystalline lens using Optical Coherence Tomography images. He then learned how to image the retina in living eyes with techniques that combine adaptive optics and confocal microscopy with Stephen Burns and studied the possibility of imaging through a cataractous lens in Pablo Artal’s lab.
