Dr Rogers’ research explores processes of change across communities, organisations, institutions and sectors, with focus on enabling societal transformations to achieve equitable, sustainable, liveable and resilient cities. This involves both core sociology and interdisciplinary research, where she brings a sociological lens to infrastructural and environmental challenges, with a particular focus on an empirical context of urban water.

Briony is a Senior Lecturer with the School of Social Sciences at Monash University, the Deputy Leader of the Society Program of the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities, Associate Director of the Monash Water for Liveability Centre and co-chair of the International Working Group on Water Sensitive Urban Design. She has an interdisciplinary background, with a PhD in Environmental Sociology, a Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honours) and Bachelor of Science, as well as experience as an engineering consultant on water infrastructure projects in Australia and Vietnam.

Briony was selected by the International Social Science Council to be one of twenty World Social Science Fellows in the area of sustainable urbanisation.
