I work in the the philosophy of science, the philosophy of physics, and metaphysics, and I teach in the Philosophy Department at Oberlin College.
Before moving to Oberlin, I taught at Princeton, and then at the University of California, Berkeley, where I was also a member of the Group in Logic and the Methodology of Science. I'm a Centre Affiliate of the Centre for the Philosophy of the Natural and Social Sciences at the London School of Economics, and an Associate of the Center for the Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh. I've also been a Visiting Fellow at the Center in Pittsburgh, and a Visiting Fellow in the Philosophy Department at the University of Bristol (twice). Before all that, I did my graduate work at Stanford, and an undergraduate degree in Physics and Philosophy at Balliol College, Oxford.
Incidentally, I changed my surname to Thomson-Jones in the summer of 2004, when I married Kate Thomson; before that it was Jones simpliciter, which I had to spend even more time spelling over the phone.
