Senior Researcher, New Technology and Startups
Jonathan is a senior researcher in the New Technology and Startups team.
Jonathan’s research at Nesta focuses on two key areas: 1) understanding how digital entrepreneurship can be supported across Europe (as part of the Startup Europe Partnership (SEP) and the European Digital Forum (EDF)) and 2) accessing the alternative finance market and how crowdfunding can be used as an innovative way of financing products and services.
Jonathan joined Nesta as an intern in 2015 before being given a permanent position later that year. Before joining Nesta Jonathan completed a PhD in Evolutionary Biology at University College London, investigating the evolution of cooperation and punishment in humans.
