Research Interests

Mitra Taheri has a Bachelor’s, Master’s and Ph.D. in Materials Science & Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. Her research focuses mainly on electron microscopy and specifically in-situ microscopy. Mitra’s team designs and builds platforms to study materials in different, often extreme, environments including high temperatures, stress, radiation, oxidation and more. Her team also develops new ways of detecting what is being seen through the microscope faster and in more efficient ways through integrating artificial intelligence. Mitra hopes this integration will improve not only researchers’ understanding of materials processes, but how new materials can be built for the next generation of applications.
