User:Jonathan A Jones
I'm Professor Jonathan A. Jones, University Lecturer in physics at the University of Oxford and Fellow of Brasenose College, Oxford. My main interests are in quantum computation but I have side interests in chemistry and biochemistry. I have Erdős number 3, via Hilary Carteret and Bruce Richmond, and a h-index of 31. Despite what my wiki page says I am probably best known not for my main academic work but rather for a successful FOI request to obtain data from the UEA CRU .
I grew up in Feckenham and went to the Abbey High School in Redditch before studying chemistry at Corpus Christi College, Oxford and St John's College, Oxford. I have had research positions at Merton College, Oxford and the University of California, Berkeley.
I should probably be busy rewriting the quantum computation pages, but I instead allowed myself (worse luck) to be dragged into maintaining the John Hood page with all the consequent controversies that leads to. That inspired me to join the University of Oxford WikiProject. I mostly keep well away from the topic of climate change but do keep an eye on the biographies of some participants.
I also have interests in a number of random pages, often linked in some bizarre way to Oxford, Brasenose or Cornwall and have created more than two dozen stubs . As you might guess from my edit style I am an inclusionist by philosophy.
