Born in Edinburgh on the 20th February 1988. His father was a General in the British Army and his mother was a Doctor currently in Africa helping out at hospital in Ethiopia. Robert's brother, Grant is a Lieutenant in the British Army and is currently assigned to the Excalibur Expedition as a scientist on the expedition flagship team. Robert is also married to Pamela Thomson who used to serve on the UNV Nexura.

After leaving university, Robert followed in his fathers footsteps and joined the British Army at the age of 18. He was trained at ATR Bassingbourn, ATR Winchester and ATR Pirbright doing countless Physical Fitness tests. He was also trained in Navigation and Map reading, Weapon handling and Application of Fire, Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Defence and Battlefield Casualty Drills. After passing out of training at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst he was assigned to the Falkland Islands Defence Force before being asked to join the UK Stargate Training Program. A program to get more British officers training to join the now public Stargate Program.

His first assignment in the Stargate Program was at the SGC as a team member to SG-22, a science team commanded by Major Will Queen at the time. He spent just under two years with the team as their systems expert. He then decided to take the opportunity to go to Atlantis to work as a Science officer but that did not last long as within a year he was back at the SGC to serve as Chief Science Officer under Allen Yu. With recent changes he has also been made acting base executive officer by acting base commander Asid Mjolnir since Lieutenant General Allen Yu and Major General Jeff Chan have been temporarily reassigned.

In April 2023, Robert was made official S.G.C. executive officer along with being the new leader of SG-1. He continued to serve as leader of SG-1 for the next 6 months. He was killed in action while on a mission with SG-1 and his XO Emily Jones replaced him as team commander. On January 1st, 2024, he was posthumously promoted to Colonel, in recognition of his service & sacrifice.
