Roger joined the Home and Community Team in November of 2013. He completed his M.Sc. in Kinesiology at Brock University where his research centered on the effect of cold temperature on the lower extremities in relation to dynamic balance and muscular strength. He also has experience conducting applied, industry driven, research investigating the impact of varied garment insulations with respect to their thermal performance in cold environments. He is currently working on the development of a winter testing protocol for assessing mobility scooter capability and assisting with research to enact safer stair design.
