His Master of Science degree in Human Biodynamics and Physiology is from the University of Wisconsin. Most recently, Robert's Ph.D. was earned at Washington State University, where he again dual-majored and authored two dissertations in the disciplines of Biomechanics and Health Services Education.

Robert worked as an Anatomical Pathologist at the Washington State University's Human Anatomy Lab for nearly a decade.
