Ira Jones

Jones is fascinated with bugs; in real life and in computers.

B.S. – Davidson College, Davidson, N.C., M.S. – New York University, Ph.D. – Auburn University, AL – also performed post–doctoral research at the University of Florida.

My research is centered on insect biochemistry and physiology associated with insect pheromones, utilizing instrumental analytical chemistry as a critical tool.

I teach in the chemistry and biology areas, and consult for and manage student research, primarily in instrumental chemistry.

My hobbies are developing laboratory procedures for the various science courses I teach, collecting insects, building computers at home, and a bit of modest RTS computer gaming.
