Alethia Jones possesses a wonderful and unique ability to blend a sophisticated and rigorous academic and research perspective with a pragmatic, and well-informed, policy frame. I have consulted with Dr. Jones on a couple of large scale research projects for NCLR dealing with immigration and attitudes toward Latinos in the U.S. Dr. Jones has been very helpful in thinking through our policy-oriented research process from beginning to end, breaking down the different phases, questions and outcomes of research planning and making valuable recommendations. Her knowledge extends from workings of policy to the grass-roots realities and strategies that are integral to social change. Dr. Jones is also a very pleasant, reliable, flexible and energetic person to work with and I recommend her consultation services highly.
