From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

David C. Queller is an evolutionary biologist at Washington University in St. Louis.[1] He received his BA from The University of Illinois in 1976, and his PhD from the University of Michigan in 1982.[2] Queller became a faculty member at Rice University in 1989 and remained there until 2011 when he was named Spencer T. Olin Professor of Biology at Washington University in St. Louis.[3] Since the late 1980s, Queller has collaborated extensively with his wife and colleague Joan E. Strassmann. Empirically, Queller and Strassmann worked primarily with social insects[4] until they made the switch to the social amoebae, Dictyostelium discoideum, in 1998.[5]
