Professor Rogers is interested in developing and applying principled artificial intelligence, machine learning and agent-based approaches within physical sensor systems to address real-world problems focusing on sustainability. His recent work has addressed future energy systems, such as the smart grid, citizen science platforms, and environmental monitoring, and typically involves the real-world deployment of novel approaches in devices, smartphones or the cloud.
Professor Rogers is the co-founder of a home heating advice spin-out, called Joulo, that combines a unique low-cost temperature logger with cloud-based analytics. He maintains the GridCarbon app for monitoring the carbon intensity of the UK electricity grid. He is searching for the New Forest cicada using smartphones and he is developing a low-cost, open-source, acoustic logger for environmental and biodiversity monitoring (soundtrap.io).
