WORK EXPERIENCE

Research Assistant, Confidential, (Jan 2010 - Dec 2011)

  • Developed MATLAB code to create 3-dimensional geometric model of human cornea with automatic hexahedral meshing for non-linear finite element analysis
  • Researched on various cornea material models and compared with the experimental data to determine the best model to run the simulation
  • Developed necessary pressure loading and restraint conditions for analysis to depict the natural condition of the eye, resulting in higher accuracy of the result
  • Performed pre-processing, analysis and post-processing jobs of the developed model using ANSYS and MATLAB and compared the result with the laboratory data
