Roger Hasler Ph. D
Roger Hasler, from Liechtenstein, obtained his Master in Chemistry from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich in 2016.
During his Master he worked on developing colloidal nanoparticles and post-synthetic surface modifications. Then, as research assistant in the group of Prof. Maksym Kovalenko at ETH he used this nanoparticles as building blocks for thermoelectric materials. In 2017 he joined the Center for Radiopharmaceutical Sciences at the Paul Scherrer Institute and developed novel radionuclides for cancer theranostics in the field of nuclear medicine. His focus was on target development for proton irradiation, but his tasks also included chemical separations and quality assessment of the produced nuclides as well as establishing recycling procedures for enriched target materials. In October 2019, he joined the BioSensor Technologies Group at the Austrian Institute of Technology as PhD candidate in the H2020-MSCA-ITN BORGES program under the supervision of Prof. Wolfgang Knoll. His research activity was focused on the fabrication of graphene field-effect transistors as well as surface plasmon resonance spectroscopic devices and merging the two technologies into a single device for combined electrical and optical investigation of surface events in thin biointerfaces. During this time, he conducted three research secondments – in the group of Prof. Gabriel Gomila at IBEC Barcelona, in the group of Prof. Paolo Samorì at the Université de Strasbourg, and in the group of Prof. Carlo Bortolotti at the Università degli Studi di Modena e Reggio Emilia.
Since January 2023 he joined the Danube Private University as researcher in the Laboratory for Life Sciences and Technology (LiST) and his work focuses on the development of a responsive wound dressing.
