Dr. Jones received BA, MS and Ph.D. degrees from the University of San Diego with a focus on Bioengineering and Fluid Mechanics. He worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Georgia Institute of Technology and as a Research Engineer at Johns Hopkins University prior to his position at Louisiana Tech University, where he is currently an Associate Professor in the Biomedical Engineering Program. He has published work on fluid mechanical phenomena such as flow instabilities and turbulent shearing, and works on novel methods for Doppler ultrasonic flow velocity measurement. His current biomedical interests include the effects of Fluid Mechanics on platelet adhesion, arterial adaptation, and vascular access graft pressure-flow relationships.

Whereas the field of Fluid Mechanics can be described as complicated, mathematically challenging, and esoteric, it is also imminently practical. It is central to a wide variety of issues that are important not only technologically, but also sociologically. This book highlights a cross-section of methods in Fluid Mechanics, each of which illustrates novel ideas of the researchers and relates to one or more issues of high interest during the early 21st century. The challenges include multiphase flows, compressibility, nonlinear dynamics, flow instability, changing solid-fluid boundaries, and fluids with solid-like properties. The applications relate problems such as weather and climate prediction, air quality, fuel efficiency, wind or wave energy harvesting, landslides, erosion, noise abatement, and health care.
