Andrew Zimmerman Jones has studied and written about physics since 1991. He holds a Physics degree from Wabash College with honors & awards.
Andrew has carried out physics research at the Indiana University Cyclotron Facility and worked as an educational consultant in three states, specializing in science & mathematics education. He has been the About.com Physics Expert since spring 2006. In 2009, he wrote String Theory For Dummies. He is a member of the National Association of Science Writers.
I fell in love with physics originally through science fiction, especially the stories of Isaac Asimov. This led me to read his non-fiction works on science and I became impressed with the elegance of physical laws.
Both of my parents are teachers and I never imagined that I would go into education, but I have grown to feel that spreading knowledge and understanding about science & mathematics is one of the most fulfilling jobs that I could possibly have chosen. I also write on other topics at my personal blog, The Philosopher's Stone.
