We at Roosevelt University are pleased to welcome Dr. Carla Jones to our faculty this autumn. Dr. Jones received her Ph.D in Oceanography from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California at San Diego and has recently served as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Division of Biological Sciences at UCSD, where her major field of study was engineering microalgae for the production of theraputic proteins.
Last week, Professors Brad Hunt and Arny Reichler had the chance to interview Dr. Jones about her work for Interface Radio. Click here to listen to an .mp3 of their half-hour conversation. Dr. Jones is teaching SUST 310 Energy and Climate Change online this fall, and this interview gives a good idea of how she approaches the links between energy consumption, climate change, and particular consequences climate change has on the world’s oceans.
If you listen to Dr. Jones discuss the importance of educating the public on sustainability, you will understand why we are delighted to have her teach in our program. If you are interested in taking courses this fall, please contact your RU academic advisor for registration details and consultations on financial aid options. If you are not currently a Roosevelt University student, we encourage you to investigate our degree options, and our course listings.
