Stephen Jones

Dr. Stephen Jones is a scientist with the New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station, which is part of the University of New Hampshire's College of Life Sciences and Agriculture. Jones has been at UNH for thirty years and is currently a research associate professor in the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment (NRESS) and associate director of the New Hampshire Sea Grant Program. He specializes in environmental microbiology and has been studying the ecology of Vibrio species in estuarine ecosystems since 1989. In his time at UNH, Jones has mentored many undergraduate researchers. He says Audrey’s project included all of what is expected in conducting environmental research: problems with measurements, unexpected results, and plenty of life experience. On writing for Inquiry, Jones says, “It is very useful for Audrey to learn to write first for scientists and then for broad audiences, and to see and appreciate the differences.”
