Carol Y. Cheung, PhD

I completed my BSc and M.Phil degrees from Department of Physics, the University of Hong Kong, and obtained my PhD from School of Metallurgy and Materials Sciences, the University of Birmingham (UK). Following my PhD in 2006, I have trained and been involved in numerous clinical and epidemiological studies using ocular imaging techniques in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and in the Singapore Eye Research Institute, Singapore National Eye Center, for more than 12 years. Currently, I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. I have conducted a number of major studies testing the validity of different automated computer programs to perform objective assessment of the retinal blood vessels and the optic nerve for evaluation of Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, and major eye diseases.
