Reginald Rogers

Reginald Rogers is currently an Assistant Professor in the Chemical Engineering program and director of the Nanoscale Energy and Separations Materials Laboratory (NESML) at Rochester Institute of Technology. Dr. Rogers received his B.S. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, his M.S. from Northeastern University, and his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan-all in Chemical Engineering. His research at the University of Michigan focused on the fundamental understanding of particle interaction potentials for applications including photonics.  After completing his Ph.D., Dr. Rogers joined the Chemical and Biomedical Engineering department at Rochester Institute of Technology as a Postdoctoral Fellow.  This research included synthesis and characterization of lithium ion battery cathode materials and adsorption using carbon nanotubes.  In July 2012, Dr. Rogers transitioned to an Assistant Professor position where he continues his research interests in separation technology via adsorption with carbon nanotubes as well as next-generation battery materials.
