Dr Atanu Ghosh
This person does not currently hold a position at QUT.
BiographyDr Atanu Ghoshis a Clinical Research Fellow in the Contact Lens and Visual Optics Laboratory at Queensland University of Technology (QUT). Dr Ghosh graduated from the West Bengal University of Technology (WBUT) in Kolkata, India in 2006 with a Bachelor degree in Optometry and Vision Science, and was awarded the WBUT University Medal. He then pursued a clinical fellowship (2006-2007) in optometry from L V Prasad Eye Institute in Hyderabad, India. In 2008, he moved to Sydney to work as a research fellow at Vision CRC. During this research fellowship he was involved in the Blue Mountains Eye Study. In 2012, he completed his PhD thesis, “Optical and biomechanical factors associated with near work and myopia”, investigating changes in a range of optical and biomechanical characteristics of the eye during near focussing and while looking downward under natural viewing conditions. It provides important insights into the changes that occur in the eyes during many typical near tasks and may have implications for the potential role of near work in the development of myopia in children. In 2014, Atanu joined University of Rochester, New York to do his post-doctoral fellowship. In Rochester, his research objective was to investigate the effect of blur adaptation on human parafoveal vision. His current research interests include:
- Presbyopia and contact lens research
- Visual optics and myopia
- Astigmatism and contact lens research
- Adaptive Optics and visual psychophysics
- Biomechanical aspects of myopia
