After leaving university Richard developed a keen interest in biomechanics, particularly the complications the foot can experience in abnormal loading. This interest led Richard to take a position working in a multi-disciplinary team with physiotherapy and orthopaedics in central London.

Richard is currently studying for his MSc in podiatry with clinical biomechanics and using these skills to enable more effective patient treatment. Recently Richard has undertaken a lecturing position with New College Durham, focusing his efforts into teaching the next generation of Podiatrists.
