Richard is a third year Ph.D. student and Gruber Fellow in the Noonan lab. He graduated from Haverford College in 2011 with a B.S. in biology. There he worked under Dr. Philip Meneely studying the molecular machinery involved in meiosis. His current project focuses on elucidating the roles of chromatin topology on the regulation of gene activation and expression. When not in lab, Richard is an avid hiker and concert goer.
