Dr Richard Riley is a practising anaesthetist at Royal Perth Hospital, having trained in anaesthesia in both Australia and the USA. His interest in medical simulation began in 1997. He became Clinical Director of the Centre for Anaesthesia Skills and Medical Simulation at the University of Western Australia in 2002. In 2006 he was the Meeting Chair for the International Meeting on Medical Simulation. He also has interests in difficult airway management and obesity. He is the Chief Editor of Australasian Anaesthesia Journal.
