Alejandra Consejo, Early Stage Researcher of the Ageye Marie Curie ITN has recently obtained her PhD from the Wroclaw University of Science and Technology, Poland. She defended her research project entitled “The anterior eye surface: age, accommodation and contact lens wear” under the supervision of Professor D. Robert Iskander (Wroclaw University of Science and Technology) and co-supervision of Dr. Hema Radhakrishnan (University of Manchester).

This research aimed to accurately describe the shape of the anterior eye surface and study how it changes under certain conditions, such as ageing, accommodation and contact lens wear. This scientific work has been possible thanks to the Ageye Marie Curie Initial Training Network funded by the European Commission (FP7-PEOPLE-ITN-2013-608049). Her work during the last three years was carried out inside the Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering PhD Program of Wroclaw University of Science and Technology.
