MIR Welcomes Five New Faculty Members

Headshot composite Amin Jahromi, MD, PhD; Parisa Mazaheri, MD; Shuo Wang, PhD; Wei Wang, MD, PhD; and Jonathan Wood, MD.

Amin H. Jahromi, MD, PhD, joins the nuclear medicine division as an instructor. He comes to us from the University of California, San Diego, where he completed a five-year radiology/nuclear medicine pathway clinician-scientist program and served as chief resident. His research interests include fluorine-19 magnetic resonance imaging. In 2020, he was named an ACR-AUR Research Scholar Fellow.

Jahromi earned a master’s of science in organic chemistry from the University of Tehran, a doctorate in biophysics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a medical degree from Tehran University of Medical Sciences. He completed a general surgery internship at University of California, San Francisco and a research fellowship in radiology at Mass General Hospital in Boston.

Parisa Mazaheri, MD, joins the neuroradiology section as an assistant professor. She recently completed a neuroradiology fellowship with MIR and also completed her diagnostic radiology residency at MIR. She worked as a research associate in the Department of Radiology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore for two years and completed an internship in the Department of Medicine at the University of Maryland Medical Center before training at MIR.

Mazaheri is involved in the American Association of Women in Radiology and a RadioGraphics subspecialty review panel. She earned her medical degree from Tehran University of Medical Sciences.

Shuo Wang, PhD, joins the Neuroimaging Labs Research Center as an assistant professor from West Virginia University, where he was an assistant professor. His research combines multimodal and advanced measurement techniques with sophisticated computational approaches to understand the neural mechanisms and neural computations underlying social attention, face processing, emotion and memory.

Wang earned his doctorate in computation and neural systems from California Institute of Technology in Pasadena and was a postdoctoral research associate at Princeton University in New Jersey.

Wei Wang, MD, PhD, joins the neuroradiology section as an assistant professor. He recently completed a neuroradiology fellowship with MIR and a diagnostic radiology residency at MIR. Prior to his fellowship, he worked as a senior scientist and research engineer at St. Jude Medical Inc. (now known as Abbott) in Sylmar, California. He was on the faculty at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in the Departments of Bioengineering and of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation as an assistant professor. Wang’s expertise is in functional brain mapping, machine learning and software engineering. He plans to develop new clinically impactful technology to integrate advanced imaging techniques into the daily radiology practice.

He earned his medical degree from Peking University Health Science Center in China and his doctorate in biomedical engineering from the School of Engineering at Washington University.

Jonathan R. Wood, MD, joins the pediatric radiology section as an assistant professor. He comes to us from Tripler Army Medical Center in Hawaii, where he served as chief of pediatric radiology. He is also associate program director of the Tripler Diagnostic Radiology Residency program and is chair of their radiology CME committee and member of their risk management committee. He has received awards for the Teaching Staff of the Quarter, Resident’s Teacher of the Year, and the Kumu Ola Award for faculty excellence — all at the Tripler Army Medical Center.

Wood holds a medical degree from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry in New York. He completed his diagnostic radiology residency at the San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education consortium at Fort Sam Houston in Texas, and a pediatric radiology fellowship at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
