Rogen attained his Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry and Biochemistry (double major) from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and a doctorate in Chemical Biology from the University of Oxford. He spent more than 8 years in laboratory work, which involves projects such as small molecule organic synthesis, molecular biology, protein work, virus work, cell biology and immunology. During his doctorate study, Rogen focused on the labelling of virus-like particles and real viruses such as adenovirus and dengue virus, which was in turn applied as a tool for tracing drug delivery and virus infection.

After leaving academia, Rogen joined Maschio & Soames IP Ltd in 2017 as a technical assistant. Since joining the patent profession, he has gained extensive experience in the drafting and prosecution of UK, European and international patent applications, as well as patent searching and analysis. In particular, Rogen specialises in cases related to chemistry, biotechnology and medical devices.

Rogen is a nature lover and he enjoys travelling around and outside the UK in his spare time. As a foreigner, he is enthusiastic to explore the history and beautiful landscapes in Europe.
