About Jonathan

Jonathan has worked as an EE for universities and private industry in Australia, California and for the last 15 years as an academic in New Zealand. He speaks C, unix, python, LaTeX, HTML, SQL, & English.

Research Interests

Electronics; biomedical systems; microwaves; instrumentation and measurement; engineering education; threshold concepts; audio and acoustics; linearity and distortion; vector correction.

I am an EE; my work focusses on characterisation, measurement, modelling and simulation, especially at RF & microwave frequencies. Recent work has strong biomedical context revolving around modelling electrodes for human implantation, and techniques for making implant leads safe in MRI scanners. I also carry out research in acoustic measurement, battery modelling, circuits, and engineering education especially in the context of threshold concepts.

Research Supervised

I supervise postgraduate students working on human-implantable leads; implantable pulse generators; fractional-derivative equivalent-circuit modelling; vector correction of acoustic measurements; threshold concepts; and impedance measurement of wet systems such as batteries and electrodes.
