Dr. Andrew Jones

Program Domain Lead, Earth Systems and Society Program
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Dr. Jones is a research scientist in the Climate and Ecosystem Sciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory where he leads the Earth Systems and Society Program Domain.   He is also the Hydroclimate theme lead for LBL’s Water-Energy Resilience Research Institute.  His research uses quantitative Earth system science tools to understand climate change at decision-relevant scales through the development and application of physical models in coordination with stakeholder communities. As part of the Hyperfacets Project, he leads a stakeholder engagement process with water, energy, and land managers aimed at identifying decision-relevant metrics for evaluating the credibility of climate data and models.  Dr. Jones is also currently leading efforts to understand and model urban environmental processes (heat waves, vegetation dynamics, hydrologic flows and their implications for energy and water resources) in the context of changing climate, land use, and demographics.  Dr. Jones completed his PhD and MS in Energy and Resources at the University of CA, Berkeley.
