Dr. Raschke is a research faculty member at the British Columbia Institute of Technology. Her research gives voice to the end users of products, processes or policies to ensure that the communities she works with are represented and have their needs met. She does this by employing evidence based practices to explore and organize how people in the community are impacted by product design, standards of practice (or lack thereof) and policy impact those people so that product design, process design and policy development is practical, implementable and actually support those who have to make things happen on the front line, on the shop floor or in their homes. Her two areas of specialty are rehabilitation engineering with a focus on prosthetic and orthotic design in support the clinicians and patients and first responders with a focus on police and the police dog service. Dr. Raschke serves on a variety of professional and educational committees and is a Board Member and past Vice President of the BCIT Faculty and Staff Association, in addition to being a member of the BCIT Emergency Response Team.

PhD, Building Systems Integration (Concordia University)
MEng, Building Science (Concordia University)
Civil Engineer, Building services and systems (Pontificia Universidad Javeriana)
Throughout his professional career, involving research and development for the planning and design of large residential developments and hospitals, as well as his academic research, he has been keen on developing tools and methods to help engineer built environments that are healthy, welcoming and pleasant.
Rodrigo is passionate about great architecture and human-centered design. As such his research focuses on improving knowledge on modelling and measuring techniques for predicting indoor environments and how these affect human health and improve human experiences in buildings. He uses this knowledge to investigate novel environmental systems that are responsive to the needs and goals of people, and in harmony with the environment., NE01 248C - Burnaby Campus
