Yori has a special interest in Clinical Biometrics in relation to Oral Medicine and Oral Pathology. He and his colleagues have developed non-invasive imaging techniques which quantify disease-specific optical markers for use in selecting the most representative biopsy site in oral mucosal diseases.  He works concurrently on the objective characterisation of morphological and volumetric peri-oral changes associated with the progression of Oro-facial Crohn’s Disease and its therapeutic interventions.
