Quinn Jones


I'm currently a second-year PhD student at the Vision Lab at WVU. My research interests include computer vision in the video and microscopy domains and their intersection with emerging virtual reality technologies.

In what spare time remains afterwards, I enjoy fine dining, strength training, rock climbing, postmodern art, and politics.

Employment

I have been working in software engineering and research since 2013 with experience ranging from virtual reality, SAAS, business intelligence, and most recently in machine learning especially as it pertains to computer vision in video, all while furthering my education.

  • 2013 - 2016

    Undergraduate Research Assistant

    WVU Sensory Neuroscience Research Center

    Computer science researcher working in tandem with Neuroscientists to enable deeper study of the brain.

    Projects included:

    • Interactive CAVE Virtual Reality System for microscopy
    • Linear classifier for three-dimensional neuron models

  • 2015 - 2016

    Software Development Intern

    Nasa IV&V, Goddard Space Flight Center

    • Researched and Developed a report generating software solution
    • Learned and utilized .NET Framework, C# and Windows OpenXML
    • Space Network protocol simulation
    • Security analysis and intrusion training

  • 2016 - Present

    Software Engineer

    IstoVisio Inc.

    Features include: cross platform availability, integrated remote database services, and more.

    See syglass.io for more details.

  • 2016 - Present

    Ruby Distinguished Doctoral Fellow

    WVU Vision Lab

    After receiving one of five Ruby Fellowships conferred in 2016 I've begun my research career in earnest under the mentorship of Dr. Gianfranco Doretto.

    My research focuses on applications to Computer Vision in the video domain such as the potential uses of LSTM networks and tasks such as person recognition on datasets such as Youtube Faces or PaSC

Education

I have been studying computer science and computer engineering since 2011. In that capacity WVU has served me well in expanding my understanding of mathematics, physics, design, and the nature of knowledge itself.

  • 2011 - 2016
