Dr. Panesar is an Associate Professor with the Civil Engineering Department at the University of Toronto. Dr. Panesar’s current and recent research activities are focused on advancing: concrete technology, cement chemistry, material characterization and long-term durability performance of cement-based materials. One broad objective of the research program is to advance concrete technologies aimed to reduce environmental impacts, improve the economic feasibility. Application of her research is in context with a range of structures, including underground infrastructure, nuclear facilities and transportation infrastructure. Prior to joining the University of Toronto, Dr. Panesar was a Design Engineer with Atomic Energy of Canada Limited where she was involved with: the construction and commissioning of CANDU reactors; evaluation and repair; and plant life management and life extension. She is involved in technical code development committees with the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) (CSA N287/291, N287.4, and Chair of CSA N287.5). She is also on the editorial board of the Elsevier Journal Cement and Concrete Composites, and a member of the Research Management Committee for the Network Center of Excellence- IC IMPACTS.

Professor Roe has taught at Georgetown University Law Center since 1983, where he is Professor of Law and the Director of the Street Law program in which law students provide legal education to the public. He has helped create experiential educational programs in universities around the globe. He is a 2008 Servant of Justice Honoree of the Legal Aid Society of Washington, D.C. and a founder and member of the Board of Trustees of the Thurgood Marshall Academy Public Charter High School, a highly successful school that prepares typically underserved, low income children for university study.
Professor Bardenwerper is a Visiting Professor at Peking University School of Transnational Law in China and former senior executive officer of one of the world’s largest professional services firms providing consulting and systems expertise in enterprise risk management, actuarial science and insurance. He has counseled diverse organizations in which the consequences of unidentified or unmanaged strategic, financial, operational or hazard risk may undermine the viability of a business or result in catastrophic loss to the public. Together with Professor Roe, Professor Bardenwerper’s focus is on teaching and developing effective tools to teach the discipline of enterprise-wide risk management.
