Dr. Deng is a Research Fellow at the National Institute of Mental Health, and Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, Duke University School of Medicine. He received the S.B. degree in physics, S.B. and M.Eng. in electrical engineering and computer science, from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He received Ph.D. and M.Phil. in electrical engineering from Columbia University. His research focuses on computational approaches to understand the biophysics of neurostimulation, to optimize dosing and individualization, and to develop better noninvasive brain stimulation technology. His work on electric field modeling of transcranial magnetic stimulation is widely cited and provided evidence that informed regulatory clearance of TMS therapeutic systems. He has received career development award from the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences and NARSAD Young Investigator Award to develop the next generation seizure therapy. His vision is to transform psychiatry through engineering innovation.
