Jon earned his MChem at the University of Bath back in 2015, which included a study year at SFU Vancouver. After this, he completed his Doctoral studies and a Post-doctorate in the group of Prof. Rachel O’Reilly mainly focusing on the development of fluorescent handles (amino and dithio-maleimides) for environment sensitize applications particularly in peptide and polymer-based applications, for example, enzyme tagging and polymer morphology dependent fluorescence. After this, Jon worked for Recycling Technologies, Swindon, where he led the set-up and development of the company’s new analytical facilities (~3-400K) for the analysis of real plastic waste and produced pyrolysis oils, char and gases. In addition, he led multiple R&D projects on understanding the chemistry of pyrolysis. Jon joined the Dove Group in October 2022 to work on amplifying research outcomes and dissemination.
