Dr. Doug Jones, born and raised in San Diego, graduated from SDSU with B.S. in Kinesiology (2010) and a M.S. in Exercise Physiology (2011). During his time at SDSU, he taught Exercise Physiology laboratory courses, served as the Exercise Physiology Laboratory Manager, and conducted thermal physiology research under the guidance of Dr. Michael Buono. Prior to graduating in 2011, Dr. Jones began an internship at the Naval Health Research Center in San Diego, where he currently works as a Research Physiologist for the Thermal Physiology team in the Warfighter Performance department. Since graduating, he has maintained an adjunct faculty position in the School of ENS, which allows him to continue research and collaborations with the faculty. In 2019, he completed his Ph.D. at the University of Brussels in Belgium, with his dissertation focused on cold water immersion and human performance. Dr. Jones has translated his Ph.D. efforts into operational research for the military by evaluating neurophysiological responses in warfighters immersed in cold water at the Marine Corps Mountain Warfare Training Center in Bridgeport, CA. On any given weekend you will find him rock climbing, hiking, trail running, mountain biking, or volunteering as an Alpine Ski Patroller. He would like to thank the outstanding faculty and staff in the School of ENS who provided exceptional support to him and many other students during their time at SDSU.
