David A Ray


I am a broadly trained evolutionary biologist. I also taught high school Biology, Chemistry and Physics before returning to graduate school and earning my PhD from Texas Tech University in 2002. After that, I held postdoctoral and assistant professor positions at Louisiana State University, West Virginia University and Mississippi State University before returning to TTU as an associate professor. My research interests are in organismal and genome evolution with an emphasis on the impacts of transposable elements on both.
