His newest area of research involves the characterization and understanding of Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR).
Dr. Richard teaches in the “Biomedical Sciences”, “Integrated Pathophysiology”, “Integrated Pharmaceutical Care and Science” and the “The Pharmacology and Counseling of Contraception” courses, and also developed the “Essentials of Pharmacogenomics” course.

“Qui docet, discit” (The one who teaches others, learns himself) – A really old and wise Latin dude.
The unlikelihood of an alternate career path has been revealed to Dr. Richard due to his experiences with fencing classes, trapeze training, triathlon events, tap dancing classes, texas hold’em tournaments, water polo classes, mechanical bull riding, performing a wedding ceremony as an Ordained Clergy Person, and creating really dumb videos that even Monty Python would not find funny.
Dr. Richard’s favorite interest is his wife, whom he thinks is a lot of fun and much cooler than himself.
