Roger has conducted climate change impact assessments and served as technical advisor to several multi-disciplinary study teams assessing critical public infrastructure and related components for vulnerability to climate change impacts and extreme events. In 2015/16, Roger served as acting Chair of the Prairie Regional Adaptation Collaborative, a collaborative that advances adaptation programs and initiatives for the Provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

Roger has worked repeatedly with Engineers Canada’s Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Committee, assisting Engineers Canada in periodic revision of its PIEVC Protocol, and in international capacity building and knowledge transfer projects for international engineering applications. Roger’s work in engineering assessment of critical infrastructure for impacts induced by climate change has been conducted in Canada, the U.S.A., the Caribbean and Central America. Roger serves as a member of the steering committee for the Prairie Climate Centre (University of Winnipeg and the International Institute for Sustainable Development), and the Canadian Water and Wastewater Association’s National Climate Change Committee.
