University of Zurich
László Demkó received his PhD degree in physics at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Hungary, for studying the transport properties and magnetic phase diagram of correlated d-electron systems with his custom-developed tools of experimental solid state physics. During these years, in a collaboration with the company VirtuaDrug, he also joined the Institute of Chemistry of the Eötvös Loránd University, Hungary, working on molecular modeling and simulation for both the pharmaceutical industry and scientific research, as well as developing related web applications and chemical databases.
After finishing his PhD, László moved to Tokyo for a 2-year postdoc position at the University of Tokyo, Japan, where he was building unique broadband spectrometers, focusing on the optical and magneto-optical properties of materials with correlated electron systems.
In 2012 he turned towards applied sciences in the Laboratory of Biosensors and Bioelectronics at the ETH Zurich, by developing new tools and methodology for biosensing applications, as well as building, interfacing, analyzing, and modeling neural networks with controlled topology.
László joined the Research Lab of the Spinal Cord Injury Center at Balgrist University Hospital in May 2016 to improve neuro-rehabilitation using wearable movement sensors, and develop advanced algorithms to qualify and quantify body movements during in/out-patient rehabilitation.
