Ivy Krystal Jones

Ivy Krystal Jones is currently working as an Assistant Professor of Physics at the Southeastern Louisiana University within the College of Science and Technology in the Department of Chemistry and Physics. She also worked as a Medical Physics Postdoctoral Fellow at Froedtert Hospital/Medical College of Wisconsin creating
customized high-quality training data for deep learning auto-segmentation of OARs using contoured CT and MR images. She completed a Postdoctoral Research Associate position at Marquette University in the Department of Mechanical Engineering working in the Shock Physics Laboratory working on dynamic behavior material analysis from 2018-2019 as well as being a 2018 OSA Ambassador. She also has obtained academic positions such as full-time adjunct faculty professor, instructor, and lecturer at Wilbur Wright College, Olive-Harvey College, Harry S. Truman College, Blitstein Institute for Women, and Chicago State University teaching general chemistry, physical science, and engineering physics from 2017- 2018. She has recently obtained a Physics Postdoctoral Fellowship position at the Medical College of Wisconsin, where she will be researching computational code for radiotherapy oncological imaging modeling applications for cancer diagnostic and treatment techniques. In addition, Dr. Jones completed a Postdoctoral Research Staff Member (I & II) position(s) in the Materials Science & Physics Division specifically in the Sensor Materials and Measurement group at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory from 2016-2017; where her postdoctoral research involved working on synthetic procedures and processing methods to yield high-performance transparent ceramics for current scintillator application projects directly related to medical imaging where she received a US Patent in Nov. 2020. She completed her M.S. and Ph.D. degree in Physics from Hampton University in the Department of Physics at the Crystal Physics Laboratory in 2009 and 2015, specializing in optical physics. Her dissertation research focused on solid-state eye safe laser material development, she has also worked in the past on various multi-disciplinary research projects from bioengineering molecular ligation methods to characterization and evaluation of hybrid space-survivable nanocomposites. She also received two MS degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Biotechnology & Chemical Sciences from Tuskegee University and Roosevelt University in 2009 and 2003. She obtained her B.S. and B.A. in Chemistry and Psychology from Tuskegee University in 2001.
