Drew Jones is Co-Founder and Co-Director of Climate Interactive, the climate change think tank that created the user-friendly climate simulations used by thousands of climate analysts around the world. An expert on international climate and energy issues, his interviews and op-eds have appeared in multiple media, including the New York Times, U.S. News, and NPR’s Morning Edition. Jones has written two op-eds in the Sunday New York Times — one on building grounded hope and another in the form of an interactive simulation. Trained in system dynamics modeling at Dartmouth College and a M.S. at MIT, Jones has worked at Rocky Mountain Institute and served dozens of clients ranging from the CDC to Harley Davidson. Jones co-accepted the 2008 "ASysT Prize" for “a significant accomplishment achieved through the application of systems thinking to a problem of U.S. national significance." He co-accepted the System Dynamics Society’s 2013 award for the best real-world application of modeling. He won Dartmouth College’s Ray W. Smith award for the most significant contribution to the status of the College. He teaches System Dynamics and Sustainability at UNC Chapel Hill’s Kenan-Flagler Business School.
