Claire Jones is an Ph.D student in history at the University of Chicago. In high school, she was a key member of the Chris Romero-coached St. John's team that placed 2nd at 2014 HSNCT and 3rd at 2014 NSC. After playing a bit but mostly doing non-quizbowl things at Princeton, she joined the British quizbowl community while pursuing a master's degree at Oxford.
Jones was a pivotal player on the Chicago A team that placed 2nd at 2023 ACF Nationals, and got the only first-line buzz of that tournament's finals sequence (on the novel Brick Lane).
