Jonathan trained as a mechanical engineer and spent the early part of his career in fundamental science designing structural components and instrumentation for the LHC particle accelerator at CERN.

He began his PhD studies at Imperial College London in 2014 and his research is principally concerned with the modelling of energy systems with a particular emphasis on modelling methods for transitions to a low carbon energy system.  Its application focus will be the UK energy system as a case study.

He is supported by a Grantham Institute scholarship and his research interests have taken him to the International Energy Agency to conclude studies on renewable energy potentials for the Energy Technology Perspectives flagship publication, and additionally to conferences including SDEWES with a focus on sustainable development.
