A philosophy PhD student at MIT. My philosophy profile is here. I don’t have a non-philosophy site, even though I do more than just philosophy. I do many things, just not all at once.
I am a graduate student in the Mechanical Engineering department at MIT, with aspirations of improving the world. I was raised in Durham, North Carolina and I enjoy building things, learning about entrepreneurship in Boston’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and cycling. In the short term, I am finishing a Masters thesis in robotics that hopes to provide a new method of deep sea exploration. Down the road, I plan to work at an early stage startup that is focused on developing a hardware technology product. I hope to learn the skills necessary to start my own venture and give entrepreneurship a shot. If things don’t work out there, I will find a job at a product design firm and live like a normal person, sleeping 8 hours every day!
A-Andrew D. Jones III
Andrew studies the influence of fluid shear stress on biofilm (think tooth plaque) metabolism and structure as a proxy for his general love of fluid dynamics. Outside the lab Andrew balances cycling, mentoring, and being a husband. As a Co-Chair of the Personal Branding Workshop, Andrew hopes to bring in dynamic successful speakers to help answer “how can I convince the world that my idea will change the world.”
