J. Adam Jones is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering in the Bagley College of Engineering at Mississippi State University. Jones teaches topics including Virtual Reality, Immersive Media, Computer Graphics, Data Science, Human-Centered Computing, Spatial Perception, and C/C++ Programming. His research focuses on utilizing virtual & augmented 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 and augmented environments. Jones also has research interests in mixed reality, visual neuroscience, spatial perception, physiological optics, data science, and computer graphics.
Previously, Jones served as faculty in Computer & Information Science and Neuroscience at the University of Mississippi. He also served as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Virtual Environments Group in the Division of Human-Centered Computing at Clemson University and as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Mixed Reality Lab in the Institute for Creative Technologies at the University of Southern California. Jones earned his PhD in Computer Science with a certification in Cognitive Science from Mississippi State University.
