Areas of Interest:

Richard's research applies advanced biophysical chemistry techniques, including neutron reflectometry, to study the functional role of plant proteins in food and biological systems within the context of biological activity and ingredient functionality. His work has explored the impact of single residues substitutions in wheat puroindolines on their interactions with lipid membranes that are the basis for their role in wheat endosperm texture (important for milling quality) and defence of the wheat seed against fungal and microbial pathogens. His research has also explored the role of protein-polyphenol interactions in the bioactivity of plant polyphenols.

Richard's teaching focuses on food protein, lipid and colloid chemistry, cereal chemistry, chemical and instrumental analysis of foods, and developing innovative and challenge-seeking graduates. He has interests in the development of blended learning approaches and distance learning via on-line courses such as MOOCs and SPOCs.
