Ray holds a PhD in Environmental/Social Psychology and works primarily in the organisational behaviour and managerial decision making areas. He has held positions in three different departments/schools at UNE over the past 32+ years: Centre for Behavioural Studies in Education, Department of Psychology and the UNE Business School - a diverse set of experiences that informs both his teaching and research. Ray also served an 18-month period as Acting Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research) at UNE from 2009-2010 and a four-year term as Chair of the UNE Academic Board from 2001-2005. His research is focused mainly in the areas of decision making and cognition, chaos and complexity theory organisational and behavioural systems theory, cause mapping and multivariate statistics. However, Ray has also worked on more diverse research projects such as multivariate analyses of criminal psychological profiling data and analysing teacher judgments when making student assessments. He has consulted with several Australian and US-based industries and government departments in areas such as ergonomics, performance measurement, survey design and analysis, and change management. Ray has written or co-authored five books (Judgment Analysis: Theory Methods and Applications (1996, Academic Press; Ray's most highly cited publication worldwide), Illustrating Statistical Procedures: For Business, Behavioural & Social Science Research (2007, Tilde University Press), Surviving and Thriving in Postgraduate Research (2011, Tilde University Press), Enhancing climate change communication: Strategies for profiling and targeting Australian interpretive communities (2013, NCCARF) and Illustrating Statistical Procedures: Finding Meaning in Quantitative data (2nd Ed., 2014, Tilde University Press) 12 book chapters and over 65 articles in national and international refereed journals. He currently has a contract for a sixth book, tentatively entitled Researching Human Systems: Principles, Opportunities, Complexities and Practicalities (Tilde University Press).

He has supervised a large number of PhDs (30), masters and honours students (27) over the years in areas such as: managerial intuition, marketing (service recovery evaluation, consumer involvement, brand equity models, organic food purchase and food preferences), leadership (public sector and tertiary education), data mining methods, community attitudes toward police, innovation adoption, organisational citizenship, commitment and culture (including research for a Professional Doctorate in Health Services Management in hospitals in the United Arab Emirates), self-efficacy and GNH values education in Bhutan, quality of financial reporting information, path dependency and flexibility in farming systems, determinants of mathematics anxiety, computerised adaptive testing models, complexity perspectives on organisational processes and policy implementation, organisational decision making, vocational interests, hazard perceptions on farms, chaos models of work performance, e-commerce strategies in small business, and women in management. 

He is currently supervising in areas such as: workplace influences on sustainability practices away from work, HRM practices in Saudi Arabia, performance of Australian TAFE institutions, cultural change at the University of Canberra and complexity in group dynamics. Ray is also supervising a candidate, working on social innovations within the policing profession, in the UNE Professional Doctorate for Industry/Professions (ProfD).
