Richard completed his B.S. in biology at Rhodes College in Memphis, TN in 1996. He received an M.S. in biology at Texas State University in San Marcos under James R. Ott in 2000. He received a Ph.D. in biology from the University of Maryland at College Park in 2008 under Charles B. Fenster and Michele R. Dudash. His masters and Ph.D. research was in evolutionary ecology. At Texas State he studied ecological determinants of gall size variation and emergence success of a cynipid wasp. At Maryland he studied pollinator specialization and the evolution of pollination syndromes, multivariate phenotypic selection on floral traits, and quantitative genetics of floral trait expression.

His current interests include multivariate statistical models applied to molecular genetic data, and modeling gene by environmental interactions.
