Jonathan completed a practice-as-research thesis on experimental theatre and transdisciplinary performance. During his doctoral studies, he co-edited the first issue of the Journal of Beckett Studies (23:1, 2014) to focus exclusively on performance, with Nicholas Johnson (Trinity College Dublin) and contributed to two edited collections: Shakespeare on the University Stage (2015) & Performing Early Modern Drama Today (2012) for Cambridge University Press. From 2013 to 2016 he co-convened the IFTR Performance-as-Research Working Group with Annette Arlander (Helsinki) and Emma Meehan (Coventry).
He is now an Associate Professor and Director of IATL.
