Biography

Jonathon holds a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Simon Fraser University, Canada, a Bachelor of Engineering in Geomatics from UCL, and a PhD in Building Science from UCL. His doctoral research, completed in 2012, examined the long-term damp and microbial risk in London following flooding by combining microbiological modelling from lab-based experimentation, hygrothermal building simulation, and GIS mapping. He joined the Bartlett in 2012 to work on the NERC-funded AWESOME project, developing a spatially-varying model of indoor overheating and pollution risk for dwellings in the UK for use as modifiers in epidemiological analysis. Prior to joining IEDE in 2012, Jonathon was a Research Associate in Resilient Infrastructure and Building Security in the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Geomatic Engineering at UCL, where he researched the consequences of biological attacks on buildings using indoor air quality models and laboratory work. He has also worked in industry in both construction and space syntax modelling.

Research Summary

As most populations spend the majority of their time indoors, buildings are increasingly important modifiers of a population's exposure to environmental health risks. Jonathon's research interests include combining spatial data, building simulation tools, and biological systems to understand the health of urban populations. He is currently involved in the NIHR Health Protection Research Unit (HPRU) on Environmental Change and Health, developing models to predict current and future overheating and indoor air pollution risks for the English housing stock under a range of dwelling retrofit, adaptation, and climate scenarios. He is also involved in the Wellcome Trust-funded Sustainable Healthy Urban Environments (SHUE) project, developing a database of globally-distributed world cities with the objective of analysing the inter-relationships between city characteristics, energy and resource use, and health-related behaviours and exposures. His research interests include using building physics tools to examine the role of buildings on occupant health, including exposure to heat and cold, indoor air pollution, damp, and disease transmission.

Teaching Summary

Jonathon lectures on the Environmental Design and Engineering (EDE) MSc course at the Bartlett and on the Crime Science MSc course in the UCL Department of Security and Crime Science.
