Biomedical, Biological & Chemical Engineering
Dr. Reginald Rogers is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biomedical, Biological, and Chemical Engineering (starting June 2019). Prior to joining the faculty at the University of Missouri, Dr. Rogers served as an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). His research interests are focused on improved water resources using novel nanomaterials (e.g. carbon nanotubes). His group’s focus is on developing 2-D and 3-D structures specifically tailored towards removal of targeted contaminants from water systems. In addition, Dr. Rogers’ group also has an interest in developing carbon nanomaterial-based structures for energy storage applications, including advanced sodium-ion systems and supercapacitors. Dr. Rogers has been recognized for his teaching, research, and service efforts through numerous invited seminars and awards. Notable awards include the 2016 Richard and Virginia Eisenhart Provost’s Award for Excellence in Teaching from RIT, the 2017 Emerging Investigator designation from the Royal Society of Chemistry, and the 2018 Dr. Janice A. Lumpkin Educator of the Year Award from the National Society of Black Engineers.
