Raymond L. Eastwood is a research fellow at the Bureau of Economic Geology, Jackson School of Geosciences, University of Texas at Austin since September 2006. He worked for ARCO at the Plano Research Center, Plano, Texas for 18 years in geological, geophysical and engineering research as a petrophysicist and for ARCO Alaska and BP/Alaska for 5 years before retiring in 2002. During that time creation and implementation of log models for open- and cased-hole applications for Alaskan North Slope reservoirs was his chief focus. He is currently a contract petrophysicist for the oil and gas industry.

Ray has a B.S. in physics and M.S. in geology from Kansas State University and a PhD in Geology from the University of Arizona. This academic training was generally focused on petrology, geochemistry and physical chemistry. He was an assistant professor of Geology at Northern Arizona University from 1970 to 1979 when he joined ARCO.
