Richard works as a consultant in health and higher education, following a long and distinguished career in medicine and academic leadership, including as Vice-President and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) of the University of New South Wales from 2006-2012.
He joined UNSW in 1997 as the Foundation John Beveridge Professor of Paediatrics. He served as head of the School of Paediatrics and then of the School of Women’s and Children’s Health before moving to the role of Senior Associate Dean in the Faculty of Medicine.
Richard was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia in 2007 for service to paediatric medicine as a clinician, researcher, educator and mentor, and serving in a range of roles with professional medical organisations.
