Siavash Mazdeyasna, a Ph.D. student in the F. Joseph Halcomb III, M.D. Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME), received the 2019 Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) Career Development Award. Winners are selected among a pool of applicants including graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and early career professionals involved in research and training focused on health disparities and minority health.
Mazdeyasna was selected for his contribution to the development of a novel noncontact, noninvasive and portable imaging system. This system takes advantage of speckle contrast diffuse correlation tomography for 3D imaging of blood flow distributions in deep tissues with arbitrary geometries, and it has been used for intraoperative imaging of blood flow distributions in mastectomy skin flaps for the guidance of precise surgery. Mazdeyasna was also the winner of the 2019 BME Outstanding Graduate Student Award in the Ph.D. category.
BMES recognizes excellence in building pathways to biomedical engineering careers and developing a diverse, technically and globally competent biomedical workforce.
Congratulations to Siavash Mazdeyasna for this well-deserved recognition.
