Prof. Giovanna Guidoboni says theoretical predictions made with the mathematical models her group has been developing in the context of glaucoma have recently been confirmed by an independent population-based study including nearly 10,000 subjects.

A mathematical model developed by a new faculty member at Mizzou could become a tool for early detection of vascular abnormalities of the eye. Professor Giovanna Guidoboni, who holds a joint appointment in electrical engineering, computer science, and mathematics, says her research began in 2010 while she was a professor of mathematical sciences at Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). That’s when she met her collaborator, Professor Alon Harris, director of clinical research at the university’s Eugene and Marilyn Glick Eye Institute.
