With 15 years’ experience working within the coastal engineering sector in the UK, Jonathan has worked on a large number of coastal defence schemes and studies and built up a wealth of knowledge and a very specific skill set. Jonathan's experience ranges from scheme design and the practicalities of site supervision through to the more academic focused study work and research and development projects. Project experience ranges from site specific design of coastal structures and beach replenishment schemes, to regional assessments of coastal processes and hazard assessments, to national projects and guidance documents.
