Biography

Jon is a Senior Research Fellow and leads the Mobility in the Urban Environment workstream within the Places and Health Programme at the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit (SPHSU).

As a Health Geographer, Jon’s research interests are in Spatial Epidemiology and Population Health. Recent publications include multi-city international comparisons of urban land covers/uses and health, development of a novel methodology for describing children's mobility and the complexity of their environmental exposure from GPS data, variability in mobility patterns and perceived stress, social-spatial patterning of road accidents and 'environmental bads', and publications using GPS data to explore exposure to unhealthy commodity advertising and natural space. Prior to this, Jon worked as a Senior Public Health Analyst for the NHS in North West England whilst undertaking an MSc in Public Health (2011) before completing a PhD in Epidemiology (2015) at Cardiff University.

Jon's research has a policy focused approach, leading the application of novel geospatial approaches to explore the impact of planning policy for health and urban mobility. For example, leading work to provide a baseline assessment of the 20-minute neighbourhood policy in Scotland.

Jon is Co-I for the following active grants:

Jon is an Editorial Board Member (Associate Editor) for the Journal Wellbeing, Space and Society and for the 'Environmental Health' section of BMC Public Health. He chairs the Data and Evidence subgroup of Public Health Scotland's multi-sector Environment and Spaces for Public Health Group.
