In January 2018, she will begin a multi-year appointment as an Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Curatorial Fellow at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C.
She received a D.Phil. in History from the University of Oxford in the summer of 2017. She was co-supervised by Professor Kevin O’Rourke and Professor Michael Hatt. Prior to doctoral study, Diana earned an M.Phil. in Economic and Social History from Oxford and received a Bachelor’s degree in Art History from Columbia University.
