Jonathan obtained an MSci in biochemistry from the University of Birmingham, UK in 2013. He then moved to Ireland to study for a PhD in biochemistry at Trinity College Dublin in Ireland. The focus of his PhD research was structural (primarily using X-ray crystallography) and functional studies of a bacterial membrane protein and enzyme for antibiotic development.
Jonathan received his PhD in 2019 and moved to London to join the Mycobacterial Metabolism and Antibiotic Research Laboratory at the Crick for a postdoc, as part of a collaboration with AstraZeneca. Jonathan will be researching allostery and enzymology for the purpose of drug discovery.
