Professor Jonathan B. Scott
Foundation Professor of EE
Qualifications: BSc BE MEngSc, PhD, PGCert(Mgt); SMIEEE, MAES, Fellow of Engineers Australia
Jonathan has worked as an EE for universities and private industry in Australia, California and for the last 15 years as an academic in New Zealand. He speaks C, unix, python, LaTeX, HTML, SQL, & English.
I supervise postgraduate students working on human-implantable leads; implantable pulse generators; fractional-derivative equivalent-circuit modelling; vector correction of acoustic measurements; threshold concepts; and impedance measurement of wet systems such as batteries and electrodes.
HDR students supervised: Peter Blockley, Toby Balsom, Mark Jones, Cameron Kelly, Kyle Pennington, Steven McCabe, Gaojie Chen, Mark Benseman, Jonathan McMullan, Sam Parkinson, Russel Mohamed, Dan Ho, Rahat Hasan, Benson Chang, Viking Zhou, Marcus Macdonell, Hedayati Mohamed, Amir Mukhtar, Iris Xiao, Dirk Hartung, Stefan Gygax, Carl Lickfold, Hiroshi Mohri, Daniel Dredge, Sinduja Seshadri, Sina Enteshari, Jianbang Liu, Chris Dunn, Vance Farrow, Gordan Wildschut, Keshav Basnet, & Eden Poihipi.
Electronics; biomedical systems; microwaves; instrumentation and measurement; engineering education; threshold concepts; audio and acoustics; linearity and distortion; vector correction.
I am an EE; my work focusses on characterisation, measurement, modelling and simulation, especially at RF & microwave frequencies. Recent work has strong biomedical context revolving around modelling electrodes for human implantation, and techniques for making implant leads safe in MRI scanners. I also carry out research in acoustic measurement, battery modelling, circuits, and engineering education especially in the context of threshold concepts.
