Dr. Tony Jones received his BSc in biology from England's York University in (1993) and his PhD in in environmental microbiology from the University of Newcastle in 1998. There, he conducted research on the ability of golden-brown algae to degrade synthetic oils and the nutritional characteristics of the algae. This was followed by post-doctoral training at King’s College London, investigating quantification of biodegradation of naphthalene and phenols at a former manufactured-gas plant in the U.K. Dr. Jones has conducted numerous assessments of biodegradative activity at sites in the Britain, France, Belgium, Brazil, and throughout the U.S.
