He has delived the Reith Lectures on “The Language of Genes” and regularly appears on comedy, news and scientific programs, and is regarded as very influential in the public engagement of science.

In his research career, Professor Jones has examined the relationship between habitat and genetic traits in variation among snails, and whether there have been any changes in response to climate change.
