Richard teaches introductory-level course Cell and Organismal Biology and upper-level courses in Cell Biology, Animal Physiology and Exercise and Extreme Physiology. He is a co-director of the Focus Australia short-term study-away program and leads the Sherpa Life and Culture GO-Short program to Nepal.
He is a cell biologist working on the regulation of insect egg development by components of the insulin-signaling pathway. He and his students use molecular and cellular techniques to examine the production, distribution and activity of the insulin receptor substrate protein CHICO in ovaries of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. This work, which has been funded by grants from NIH and NSF, has resulted in a number of publications outlining the regulatory processes in vitellogenesis.
Richard presently serves as Associate Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences.
