Centre Staff

One of the EPSRC Centre's greatest strengths is its multidisciplinary and highly skilled staff who work together in flexible projects teams, also incorporating selected PhD students, to deliver cutting edge research.


Jonathan (known as Jonty) completed his MEng degree in Aeronautical Engineering at Loughborough University in 2008 and achieved his PhD in Avionics also at Loughborough in 2013.

Before joining the Centre in January 2015, Jonty's previous work experience was primarily in the aeronautical industry. He is also a pilot.

Jonty's research interests lie in autonomy of expert systems, CNC machine design, compliant actuators and grippers, estimation and control of manufacturing robots, electroadhesion, rapid prototyping and sensor integration from diverse and redundant systems.
