Professor Jonathan B. Scott

Foundation Professor of EE

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

Research Interests

Electronics; biomedical electronics; 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.
