Ronald Jones was raised in a family of people full of curiosity with technical devices and the natural world.  He trained in Engineering Physics at Cornell University and obtained a Ph.D. in Physics at the University of Houston in the field of non-linear dynamics.  He found his training useful in helping lawyers draft patents and eventually was hired as a Patent Agent.  Currently, he has more than 20 years of experience in intellectual property. 

He has worked in technological fields such as drilling and petroleum exploration (including seismic testing, nuclear magnetic resonance imaging, resistivity testing, drill bit technologies, drill string design), autonomous vehicles, headlight technologies, radio communications, signal processing, semiconductor manufacturing, missile and weapons systems, energy and turbine technologies, micro-electrical mechanical systems (MEMS), Lidar and radar systems, phased-arrays, and optics.

Ron has taught several courses in Optics and Astronomy at the University of Houston.  He spends his free time playing piano, learning to cook and to make cocktails.  He has several years of training in Argentine tango.
