Alan Rogers, Research Scientist at MIT Haystack Observatory, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Scientists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of electrical engineering.
Dr. Rogers started his higher education at the University College of Rhodesia (now the University of Zimbabwe) and earned a Bachelor of Science in mathematics and physics in 1962. He continued his education at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he earned a Master of Science in electrical engineering in 1964, and a PhD in electrical engineering in 1967. While completing his studies at MIT, Dr. Rogers worked there as a research assistant, and after his graduation in 1968, he became a senior research scientist at MIT Haystack Observatory. He remained in his position for more than 35 years, until 2006, when he transitioned to a role as research affiliate at the observatory, where he continues to work to this day.
In addition to his work at MIT Haystack Observatory, Dr. Rogers has written and contributed to a variety of professional publications. He is a member of the American Astronomical Society, the American Geophysical Union, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. He worked on very long baseline interferometry for astronomy and geodesy and is proudest of his development of deuterium detection and measurement of the universe theories. During his college education, Dr. Rogers was assigned to work on a project to build a radio telescope in order to see the hydrogen in the universe. Based on his design, the founder of the project had over 500 models built and sold to universities across the country. As a testament to his success, Dr. Rogers was included in the first edition of Who’s Who in Science and Engineering.
