Jonathan is a research fellow in the School of Electronics and Computer Science, with cross-disciplinary expertise (BSc Biomedical Science, PhD Optoelectronics). His work is focused on using integrated optical technology and microfluidics for biomedical and environmental applications most notably microflow cytometry.


- Deployable microflow cytometer for impedance and fluorescence based analysis of marine phytoplankton.

- Microflow cytometer for the analysis of pigment content of commercial algae crops.

- Microflow cytometer for the analysis of extracellular vesicle sized particles using multiangle scattering analysis

- "Build your own Algae Farm" interactive game for science communication and outreach.

- Antimicrobial blue light in urinary catheters.

Jonathan has a broad skill base in optical theory and design, microfabrication, microfluidics, electronics and experimental biology. JB has been awarded £16K as PI from HEFCE (Zepler Institute Stimulus Fund) for research into anitmicrobial light guiding technology in biomedical devices. He has also been the researcher co-I on a £20K Higher Education Innovation Fund projects from HEFCE (Zepler Institute Stimulus fund). In 2019 JB was funded to attend the British Council/Newton fund, UK-India Researcher Links Multi-disciplinary Workshop on TB Diagnostics and AMR.
