Project Management



  • 2015-present

    Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

    Lead Research Specialist

    I managed a plethora of light and health research projects by supervising all data analysis and product development. Highlights include the invention of a Bluetooth wearable sensor that records light and motion, the creation of an Arduino-based lighting controller, and the development of 3D-printed parts for a light delivery apparatus designed for use with an fMRI device.

  • 2013-2015

    Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

    Senior Research Specialist

    I developed a variety of designs and applications for our existing custom wearable light sensors. I conducted an assortment of research projects about lighting, coauthored peer-reviewed journal articles based on my research, and collaborated with researchers at other institutions (NASA, NIH, NIDA, ACS, NSMRL, GSA, UCSF, Duke University, the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, etc…). I also mentored several of the students and interns at the center and helped them with their own assignments.

  • 2013

    Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

    Research Specialist

    I calibrated the research equipment at the center, including custom wearable sensors, light goggles, and spectrometers. I also implemented a suite of MATLAB tools used to analyze research data.

  • 2010

    Exelis, Inc.

    Engineering Intern

    At my internship, I spent my time interfacing with the manufacturing engineering team to add products into SAP ME, designing reports using Crystal Reports, and documenting process instructions for new systems. I also played a large part in improving the tracking system and process control to augment workflow performance.

  • 2009

    Exelis, Inc.

    Engineering Intern

    As an intern in the Mechanical Engineering Department, I had the opportunity to assist with various projects by constructing 3D CAD models, creating technical drawings, engineering physical prototypes, conducting finite element analysis on models, and designing and testing watertight electronic enclosures.

I'm ready to work with you

[...] I have had the pleasure of collaborating with Mr. Geoffery Jones on a joint research project between the US Navy and his former employer, the Lighting Research Center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY. During this time period I met with Mr. Jones multiple times in person and had a multiple opportunities to work directly with him on the analysis and manuscript preparation for a complicated US Navy led field trial. Mr. Jones demonstrated flexibility, ingenuity, and optimism as we conducted analysis using novel research techniques integrating biomedical, engineering, statistics, and military operational concepts to lead to a product that we are currently attempting to publish in a peer-reviewed biomedical journal.

As a US Naval Academy graduate, former Navy submarine line officer qualified as naval nuclear engineer, and currently a US Navy physician, I have had the privilege to work with many highly talented people, both military and civilian. Mr. Jones is among the top 5 percent of people that I have evaluated.

Lieutenant Commander, Colin R. Young

I hired Geoffrey to help implement our new SAP manufacturing systems capabilities. Geoffrey did an outstanding job in all areas that included; selection and evaluation of software, developing functional specifications, master data configuration and programming of custom reports. In addition to his information technology internship, Geoffrey demonstrated a willingness to learn and worked closely with our mechanical, engineering and operations teams. I can definitely recommend Geoffrey for any organization. He is a passionate professional with solid technical and leadership qualities.

Chuck Womeldorf

I had the pleasure of working alongside Geoffrey during the implementation of SAP ME software. His technical skill and attention to detail were invaluable to the success of the initiative. I would highly recommend Geoffrey and would personally hope for the opportunity to work with him again in the future.
