He joined the Bristol University in August 2017 to pursue a PhD in Physics. His doctoral research with the Interface Analysis Centre (IAC) delved into the application of hyperspectral imaging for assessing coral health, harnessing natural reflectance and fluorescence.
Presently, as a Research Associate at Bristol University, Jonny continues to push the applications of hyperspectral imaging. His current focus lies in developing cutting-edge low-cost hyperspectral technologies for characterisation of environments and materials, building upon the foundations established during his PhD project.
Jonathan does research in Environmental Science, Marine Biology, Marine Technology and Optics. Specifically looking at the interactions of light on coral through reflectance and fluorescence measurements using hyperspectral imaging.
