Jonathan joined the University of Glasgow Adam Smith Business School as a Lecturer in Accounting in 2020.

He completed his BA (Hons) in Accounting and Finance at the University of Strathclyde before obtaining a PhD in Accounting from the University of Edinburgh. In his doctoral research, Jonathan examined and critiqued the relations between contemporary regimes of state transparency and democracy, theorising these through the related notions of ideology and spectacle as set out in the works of Slavoj Žižek and Guy Debord.

Jonathan draws on a broad base of readings in critical theory, political economy, psychoanalysis, and sociology to understand and critically evaluate the workings of accounting, accountability, and transparency in organisations and society.
