Darrel Deo is a neural engineer developing prosthetic devices to help restore movement and communication to people with paralysis via brain-computer interfaces. Darrel received his B.S. degree in Robotics Engineering from the University of California, Santa Cruz, in 2013. He then received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University in 2015 and 2020, respectively, with Professors Allison Okamura, Krishna Shenoy, and Jaimie Henderson. Darrel is now a postdoctoral fellow in Stanford’s Neural Prosthetics Translational Laboratory, designing and developing brain-computer interface technology to re-enable motion of the entire body for individuals with paralysis.
