Richard completed his PhD under the co-supervision of Brady Deaton and Karl Meilke in 2008 with his dissertation investigating The effects of strict agricultural zoning on farmland values: The case of Ontario’s Greenbelt. Richard then joined FARE as Assistant Professor in 2009 and was tenured and promoted to Associate Professor in 2015.
