Roger conducting Executive Training, from IFP brochure
I started teaching in 1983 while still a graduate student at Penn, and over the years held Adjunct Professor positions in both the City and Regional Planning and Systems Engineering departments there.
I began teaching at the IFP School in Rueil-Malmaison, France in 1989, making a (highly anticipated!) visit to Paris every summer since then. IFPEN academic programs include both an Energie et Marches (Energy and Markets) Master’s program for French students, and a Petroleum Economics and Management (PEM) program for international ones.
I’m currently Resident Professor of Energy, Resources and Environment (ERE) at the Hopkins-Nanjing Center in Nanjing, China. The Center is a joint program between Johns Hopkins’ School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) and Nanjing University. Both Chinese and international students can concentrate in ERE, which is also offered at SAIS campuses in Washington DC and Bologna, Italy.

My executive education experience is also extensive, with IFP Training program lectures since 1991 in Rueil-Malmaison, and GE’s Oil & Gas University since 2005. The latter is coordinated through IFP Training, with programs undertaken in Italy, Abu Dhabi and Indonesia.
Other important teaching and training efforts:
Taught and lectured at universities in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, South America, and the Caribbean.
Directed or participated in more than a dozen technical training programs around the world, for UNDESA, UNIDO, UNDP, USAID, the World Bank, etc.
Directed a four month international training program at Penn in 1994 in Energy Planning and Policy. That course brought in 28 executives from 15 countries, and was funded by US AID.
