Richard is a PhD candidate in Marketing Science at INSEAD in Fontainebleau, France. His research focuses on the complexity of competition in retail markets and its implications for market outcomes. He makes use of both empirical and analytical methods. In July 2024 Richard will be starting as an Assistant Professor in the Marketing Department at the National University of Singapore.
