Rick has been a Lecturer in the CSE department at UCSD since January 1991 (full-time since 2001) and an Instructor in the Information Technologies department at UCSD Extension from 1987 - 2005. Rick became interested in computers while working at the UCSD Medical Center as a Physician's Assistant in the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery (1979 - 1981). He would spend the on-call nights playing rudimentary Star Trek games on a computer system used for patient data monitoring. He also did a lot of interfacing between medical staff and the computer programming staff.
