Dr. Gramatikov is an assistant professor in the Division of Pediatric Ophthalmology and Adult Strabismus at the Wilmer Eye Institute. He is a biomedical engineer with expertise in medical instrumentation, electronic hardware, optoelectronics, medical optics, computer software, signal processing, computer modeling and data analysis. His current research interests are detection and retinal birefringence scanning in clinical settings. The main goal of his research is to identify and treat children with strabismus (misaligned eyes) or anisometropia (unequal refractive error) before irreversible amblyopia (functional monocular blindness) results.
Dr. Gramatikov earned his Dipl.-Ing. (BS) degree from the Technical University of Ilmenau, Germany and his Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from the Technical University of Sofia's School of Electronic Engineering and Technology. He joined the Johns Hopkins faculty as a research associate in biomedical engineering in 1996 and was appointed to the Wilmer faculty in 2000.
