Roger was the director of the Infrastructure and Development course at the London School of Economics, and lectures regularly on regeneration policy throughout the UK. He has served as president to the Architectural Association, was a working group member of the government’s Urban Task Force, and has been appointed Honorary surveyor to the Royal Academy.
