Biography

Reginald Rogers is an associate professor in the Department of Biomedical, Biological and Chemical Engineering. Prior to joining the faculty at the University of Missouri, Rogers served as an associate professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at 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 2D and 3D structures specifically tailored toward removal of targeted contaminants from water systems. In addition, his group also has an interest in developing carbon nanomaterial-based structures for energy storage applications, including advanced sodium-ion systems and supercapacitors. Rogers has been recognized for his teaching, research and service efforts through numerous seminars and awards. Notable awards include the 2021 Mentor on the Map Award from the National Organization for the Professional Advancement of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers, the 2019 ACS Stanley C. Israel Regional Award for Advancing Diversity in the Chemical Sciences and the 2018 Dr. Janice A. Lumpkin Educator of the Year Award from the National Society of Black Engineers.
