Outside of the lab, I'm a football (soccer) fanatic and if I'm not in the lab on weekends, I'm usually playing/watching/attending football matches. That, or camping in the gorge.

Rich earned his BA in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology just across the river at Reed College in 2015. He spent two years working toward a structure of open GIRK bound to small molecules or G-proteins in Matt Whorton's lab at the Vollum Institute as a research assistant. He then joined OHSU's Program in Molecular and Cellular Biosciences (PMCB) in 2017 and the Baconguis lab in April 2018 to study the structure of ENaC in complex with regulatory proteins. When he's not in lab he can be found riding his bike or playing with his cat, Nooch.
