Dr. J. Adam Jones joined the faculty in 2015. Jones is also a member of the Neuroscience faculty. He earned his PhD in Computer Science with a graduate certification in Cognitive Science from Mississippi State University. Jones also served as a Postdoctoral Fellow at Clemson University and at the University of Southern California.

Professional Research

Dr. Jones's primary research focuses on utilizing virtual environments and psychophysics to better understand how humans perceive, behave, and interact with the world around them, whether real or synthetic. This research then feeds back into the creation of more perceptually accurate, higher fidelity virtual environments. Jones also has research interests in augmented reality, visual neuroscience, spatial perception, physiological optics, data science, and computer graphics. Dr. Jones leads the High Fidelity Virtual Environments (HiFiVE) lab.

At the graduate level, Jones teaches courses in virtual environments, human-centered computing, spatial perception, and computer graphics.
