The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents named Kim D. Jones a regents professor this fall.

He was one of 11 outstanding faculty members throughout the Texas A&M system the board honored this year for “their work consistently elevat[ing]” the university system, Texas A&M System Chancellor John Sharp said.

Jones earned a master’s degree (in 1994) and a Ph.D. (in 1997) in environmental engineering from Georgia Tech. He’s been teaching environmental engineering at Texas A&M-Kingsville since 1999. He also directs the department’s Institute for Sustainable Energy and the Environment.

According to his university bio, “Jones’ research focuses on natural systems engineering applications for solid and hazardous waste treatment; environmental biotechnologies for air and water treatment; low impact development research and modeling; constructed wetlands; vapor phase biofiltration for air toxics; water reuse applications; fate and transport of contaminants in subsurface systems; and solid and hazardous waste management.”
