Richard developed his interest in all things behavioural as an undergraduate. He completed a Ph.D at Imperial College looking at modifying the behaviour of crop pests and their natural enemies.
A desire to do as much applied work as possible led to post-doctural work in the hop fields of Kent. An opportunity arose to do web design and conference organisation presenting him with the tricky decision of whether to continue to do research directly, or help others in a more commercial role. Starting out as web-designer and zoology support for Tracksys, Richard is now one of its Directors and oversees a host of behavioural projects across human and animal sciences, in academia and the commercial sector.
Richard particularly enjoys discussing research plans with potential clients, matching them to the solutions Tracksys offers and putting clients in touch with each other to create opportunities for innovative research.
When not spending time with his wife and pre-teenage kids (may these days never end) he is exploring the theory that it is possible to run faster at the age of 50 than at 35. Richard can be contacted at email@example.com
