Biography
Jones’ research focus is environmental and geophysical fluid dynamics, in particular the interaction between the physics and biogeochemistry in natural aquatic environments. She uses a combination of field and laboratory observations and numerical modelling to study topics such as:

* The elucidation of internal wave generation, propagation and dissipation.
* The role of complex topography in circulation and mixing in a macro-tidal environment.
* The role of non-linear internal waves in stimulating primary productivity.
* The ocean response to tropical cyclone forcing.
* The influence of whitecapping waves on the vertical structure of turbulence in shallow water environments.
* The hydrodynamic control of phytoplankton loss to the benthos in estuarine environments.
* Plume dispersion on fringing coral reefs.
* The development of field techniques for studying environmental fluid mechanics.
