Daniel Citterio received both his diploma in chemistry and his doctoral degree in natural sciences from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich (Switzerland) in 1992 and 1998, respectively. After postdoctoral research at Keio University in Japan, he returned to Switzerland and became a research associate at ETH in 2002. Following post-graduate studies at ETH Zurich in the field of intellectual property and work at Ciba Specialty Chemicals in Basel (Switzerland), he returned to Keio University in 2006, where he was assigned a post as non-tenured associate professor in 2007. In 2009, he became a tenured associate professor and was promoted to full professor in analytical chemistry in spring 2014. He is now leading the laboratory for Analytical Chemistry at the Department of Applied Chemistry of Keio University in collaboration with Professor Koji Suzuki.
Daniel Citterio has co-authored more than 70 peer-reviewed papers including 2 invited review articles in major international journals. In addition, he is named as a co-inventor on more than 10 patents or patent applications. He has presented more than 10 invited lectures at international conferences.
Daniel Citterio’s research interests are the development of low-cost analytical devices, in particular inkjet printed microfluidics. He is also strongly engaged in the development of functional molecules for optical chemical sensing and their application in optical sensing devices or as imaging probes.
