After a first degree in Chemistry with Medicinal Chemistry at Imperial College London, Jonathan went on to research Environmental Science in the Centre for Environmental Policy at Imperial College. His PhD focussed on the use and development of environmental risk assessment strategies, pharmaceutical chemistry and the management of hazardous household waste.
Since joining MTD Jonathan has been involved in investigations into losses concerning pharmaceutical packaging and transport, environmental contamination and waste handling as well as contamination, shortage and loss claims involving petrochemical products and food cargoes.
His expertise in the environmental impacts of incidents or operations resulted in him being appointed Project Manager for MTD’s involvement in the Geoenvironmental Research Park (GRP), a major research and development facility lead by the Cardiff University School of Engineering and funded by the European Union. The GRP acted as an incubator for a number of high-tech companies working in the broad field of the environment and sustainability.
