Foundation Professor of EE

Qualifications: BSc BE MEngSc, PhD, PGCert(Mgt); SMIEEE, MAES, Fellow of Engineers Australia

About Jonathan

I speak 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.

Students supervised: Peter Blockley, Toby Balsom, Mark Jones, Cameron Kelly, Kyle Pennington, Steven McCabe, Gaojie Chen, Mark Benseman, Jonathan McMullan, Sam Parkinson, Rahat Hasan, Marcus Macdonell, Hedayati Mohamed, Russel Mohamed, Amir Mukhtar, Iris Xiao, Dirk Hartung, Stefan Gygax, Carl Lickfold, Hiroshi Mohri, Daniel Dredge, Sinduja Seshadri, Sina Enteshari, Jianbang Liu, Chris Dunn.

Research Supervised

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