Arni is a scientist in the field of Medical Physics. He has 14 years educational training (BS, MS, and PhD) in the University of the Philippines and the VU University Amsterdam, the Netherlands. During Arni’s PhD studies at the VU University Medical Centre, he co-invented color LED specular reflection technology in corneal imaging (*Patent No. WO2009127442A1) which resulted in a clinical instrument now known as the Cassini corneal shape analyser.
Arni also worked at the Rotterdam Eye Hospital to promote his research “towards a spectacle-free society”. The instrument Cassini has gained recognition in the US and Europe which partly motivated Arni to go back to the Philippines to bring the technology to his home country. Recently, he began working at the Philippine Eye Research Institute continuing his passion to excel in the field of academics.
Arni loves to collect puns and use it for almost everyday use. He enjoys laughter and wit.
