Professor Youjin Deng received his master degree from Beijing Normal University, and his PhD from Delft University of Technology in 2004 under the supervision of Prof. Henk W.J. Bloete. Since then, he worked at New York University with Prof. A.D. Sokal and Heidelberg University with Prof. Jian-Wei Pan. Since 2009, he has been a full professor at University of Science and Technology of China. He was an adjunct professor of UMass Amherst from 2010 to 2015, and promoted to be an adjunct professor in 2016.
His research interests include “Monte Carlo method”, “phase transitions and critical phenomena”, and quantum simulation theory. He has coauthored more than 100 peer-reviewed articles, including Science (1), Nature (1), Nature Physics (1), Nature Photonics (1), Physical Review Letters (18), Physical Review X (1), Nuclear Physics B (6), and Physical Review A-E (60) etc. His research activities receive support from Ministry of Science and Technology and National Science Foundation of China.
