Jasmine Lanee Jones and Jessica Renee Jones were conferred the rights and privileges of a Doctor of Philosophy in Information Science and Doctor of Philosophy in Aerospace Engineering, respectively, at the 2018 Spring Commencement Ceremony on April 28, 2018 at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
Jasmine's research focused on understanding how culture and social identity affect how people use technologies in their everyday life, from health tracking apps, to assistive technologies used by people with disabilities, to technologies for preserving and passing down family memories. She was awarded several fellowships to fund her research and academic training at Michigan, including the prestigious National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowship, GEM Consortium PhD Fellowship, and the Rackham Graduate Fellowship. She has traveled to over 5 countries to conduct her research and present her scientific work.
Jasmine completed Bachelor's degrees in Computer Science (B.S) and Interdisciplinary Studies (B.A.) at the University of Maryland Baltimore County in 2012, where she was a Meyerhoff Scholar and a member of the Honors College. Jasmine is currently employed as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the University of Minnesota (Minneapolis) Department of Computer Science, where she is continuing her research in the field of human-centered computing.
Jessica Renee Jones' dissertation, entitled "Development of a Very Flexible Testbed Aircraft for the Validation of Nonlinear Aeroelastic Codes," was completed under the supervision of Professor Carlos Cesnik. Their work in the design, simulation, and flight testing of the X-HALE unmanned aircraft earned a Bronze Award from the Royal Aeronautical Society and has been published in the Aeronautical Journal and by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
Jessica earned a B.S in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park in 2011, where she was a Banneker Key Scholar and received a scholarship from the Vertical Flight Foundation of the American Helicopter Society. During her Ph.D tenure, Jessica was a Rackham Merit Scholar and a Graduate Fellow of the National Science Foundation. Jessica now works as an aerodynamicist with Aurora Flight Sciences, a Boeing Company, a leader in the development and manufacturing of advanced unmanned systems.
Dr.'s Jasmine and Jessica Jones are the twin daughters of Rose Caldwell Jones (Campbellsville, KY) and the late Joe Jessie Jones (Hopewell, VA), and grand-daughters of George and Catherine Robinson Caldwell (Columbia, KY), and the late Albert and Lue Green Jones (Hopewell, VA).
