Bill Jones is Professor of Combustion in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College London. He completed his Ph.D. in Imperial College and successively became a research Fellow in the Technische Hochschule, Aachen, a section leader in the Combustion Department of Rolls-Royce Ltd and, from 1977, a member of the teaching faculty of Imperial College London.

Bill has been active in Combustion and Turbulence Research (see also ) for over twenty-five years, has published extensively in the fields of turbulence, combustion modelling and CFD. The current activities of Bill and co-workers include Combustion Large Eddy Simulation (LES), the development of PDF transport equation methods for turbulent combustion, the development of CFD tools for practical combustion systems and the modelling of turbulence. He is an active participant in the UK EPSRC consortia LESUK and COCCFEA.
