About Diana

Diana Mojahed is a Postdoctoral Associate in Materials Science & Engineering at MIT. She graduated with her PhD in Biomedical Engineering in 2021 from Columbia University working under Dr. Christine Hendon. In her PhD, she developed an optical coherence tomography (OCT) to rapidly evaluate breast biopsies and pathology specimens to improve the quality of care for patients. Her device and artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms were demonstrated in a pilot 100-patient clinical study. Her work was supported by the Columbia BiomedX Technology Accelerator Program, which is a highly competitive program that choses 5-6 projects per year to have strong potential for advancing clinical practice.
