About the speaker

Richard Nguyen is a Research Assistant at the Yale University School of Medicine.

I started keeping fish when I was 5 years old with some wild caught guppies in a paddle grain field near my house, South Vietnam. While the hobby grew in me, I noticed that I really enjoy travelling several miles riding my bike on weekend morning either to catch fishes or socialize with local pet stores to learn anything about fishes, especially tropical ones. By highschool, I was in love with basic genetics, but there was not much more than Mendelian law at that time (still in Vietnam).

In 2010, when I moved to the USA, I was able to manage some small tanks to refresh my hobby with endlers. At about the same time, I found a picture of Sanke swordtail from the Internet which until now I cannot trace down its origin. However, that single picture feed my mind daily to dedicate all little chuck of spare time to seek for the solution re-create it. 9 years of consecutively thinking, learning, and working for it. I haven't got the in my dream, but I earned plenty meaningful things around this hobby.
