Curtis Jones graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in agricultural and biological engineering from the University of Florida in 2006. During this time he was introduced to crop modeling and worked on projects related to irrigation management and climate impacts on agricultural production. After graduating, he worked for Water & Air Research Inc., and environmental consulting firm, focusing on water quality monitoring projects. In 2008 he began graduate school at the University of Florida, receiving his PhD in agricultural and biological engineering in May of 2013. His graduate research focused on irrigation management and greenhouse gas emissions in intensively managed vegetable production systems. He joined the Joint Global Change Research Institute as a research associate in June of 2013, where his research focused on modeling biogeochemical cycling within agricultural systems as well as agricultural impacts, mitigation, and adaptation to climate change. He is currently continuing these research endeavors at the University of Maryland.
