He is a registered Professional Engineer in the State of California and has over 10 years of experience in the field of pavement engineering, including pavement mix design development, pavement management, and construction observation-and-testing services.
Roger’s knowledge stems from his formal education and training in Pavement Engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno, which is the host of the Western Regional Superpave Center (WRSC), a center established by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to establish standards and promote the implementation of Superpave pavement technology.
He has applied his specialized background in pavement engineering over a wide range of projects and clients, including local agencies, private-sector clients, ports, airports, material producers, and contractors. During construction, Roger also manages and oversees the quality-assurance/quality-control aspect of GMU’s pavement projects. His full-circle experience from pavement design/evaluation to construction allows him to develop practical and cost-effective solutions to real-world and complex pavement-related challenges.
Roger presents his knowledge and experience in workshop and classroom settings on topics related to pavement engineering and construction, including as a past instructor for “Construction Materials and Testing” at Santiago Canyon College. Additionally, as a participant of the Greenbook Committee, Roger has helped to shape pavement construction specifications and requirements utilized by numerous agencies and projects throughout Southern California.
