Jon is Professor of Geomatic Engineering and the Head of the School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences. He leads the school's research into photogrammetry and laser scanning, developing optimised photogrammetric and laser scanning solutions for measurement, mapping, monitoring and parameterisation of engineering models. He is currently (2012-16) an elected Member of Council for the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS), and has previously served as President of Technical Commission V on close range image measurement techniques (2008-12), and Chair of ISPRS Working Group I/4 on airborne digital sensor systems (2004-08). Jon's research has been disseminated through the publication of over 130 papers in refereed journals, conference proceedings and professional periodicals. His work has also been highlighted in the national and international media.
