Hi, I’m Adam Jones.

I’m an assistant professor of Computer & Information Science at the University of Mississippi.  I conduct research in the field of Augmented and Virtual Reality.  Specifically, I studying spatial perception in near & medium field augmented and virtual environments.  I completed my PhD in Computer Science & Engineering with a Graduate Certification in Cognitive Science from Mississippi State University.  After completing my PhD, I served as a postdoctoral fellow at Clemson University in Human Centered Computing and at the University of Southern California in the Institute for Creative TechnologiesMixed Reality Laboratory.  My other academic interests include Human-Computer Interaction, Human Factors, Cognitive Science, Visual Perception, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Information/Scientific/Medical Visualization, and Foreign Languages.

My personal interests include traveling, cooking, reading, photography, foreign cultures, archaeology, tinkering, misc. science fiction, adventurous eating, coffee, tea, things that resemble tea, curry, and things that resemble curry.  I very much enjoy dabbling in languages, though I am far from multilingual.  I’m also very enthusiastic about learning through experimentation, and I try to bring this into the classroom when I teach.  I also appreciate a good piece of toast.

In my previous lives, I’ve been a programmer, web designer, teacher, systems administrator, and the occasional MacGyver.

Thanks for stopping by.
