Richard uses silicon photonic microring resonators to make systems based measurements of numerous analytes of interest. His current work focuses of muliplexed miRNA detection in lysate from cancer cell lines and tumor samples.

When not in lab, Richard enjoys running, getting outside, eating new foods, and hoping the Virginia Cavaliers will one day put together a national championship caliber football team.
