Chris JonesI am a historian of energy, technology, and environment who studies how we have come to use and depend on fossil fuel energy sources and how these decisions have changed the ways we live, work, and play. My book, Routes of Power: Energy and Modern America was published by Harvard University Press in April 2014.

I serve as Assistant Professor of History in the School of Historical, Philosophical, and Religious Studies at Arizona State University. I have previously held postdoctoral fellowships at Harvard University and University of California-Berkeley.
