Jonathan's first degree was in Applied Physics, followed by a PhD in materials characterisation of thin films. He took over as manager of the microscopy facilities within Cranfield Defence and Security, supporting internal and external users and clients.
He was the Course Director for the Forensic Engineering and Science MSc between 2015-2020, and developed modules teaching various aspects of failure identification and analysis based on his practical experience of undertaking failure investigations.
He has served as Secretary and Chair of the Materials and Characterisation Group of the Institute of Physics.
