  • About

    Professor Jones’ recent research activities have focused on the physics of strong interactions at high energy, at the interface between experimental high-energy particle physics at accelerators and cosmic ray physics. He is peripherally involved in the TOTEM experiment and with the Zero Degree Calorimeter (of the CMS detector) at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. He is also a collaborator in the GAMMA experiment; an extensive air shower array cosmic ray research facility on Mt. Aragats in Armenia. He served as co-chair of the Organizing Committee of the 16th biennial International Symposium on Very High Energy Cosmic Ray Interactions, held at Fermilab in 2010. 

    Together with 4 contemporary co-authors, he has written a book Innovation was not Enough; the History of the Midwestern Universities Research Association (MURA), published by World Scientific in late 2009, recounting research in particle accelerator design they did in the 1950s and early 1960s. 

    He is a member of the Board of the University of Michigan Retirees Association.
