Roger's current research interests is on aviation and climate change, with the aim to evaluate and mitigate the climate impact of aviation emissions and contrail cirrus. His work is largely quantitative based, which includes the modelling of flight trajectories, aircraft fuel consumption, exhaust emissions and the lifecycle of contrails.
In addition, Roger is also interested in urban planning and the global factors affecting motorised modal shares in cities, in particular, to evaluate the conditions and barriers for cities to reduce automobile dependence and promote the usage of sustainable transport modes. Other interests include finance and pandemic modelling.
