Area of expertise

Jon's earliest areas of expertise were in the fields of health and illness, with particular regard to the role played by 'race' and ethnicity in these domains. Jon's PhD was in the area of 'race' and sexuality. This focus was strengthened through research undertaken for the NHS on the role of diversity in nurse education. Subsequently, Jon's expertise broadened to engage more inclusively in the role played by social diversity in the contemporary nation state, and with a particular interest in migration. The role played by intra-EU highly skilled migration became the focus of an Economic and Social Research Council grant (with Professor Louise Ryan), 'French Capital: A Study of French Highly-Skilled Migrants in London's Financial and Business Sectors'. Subsequently Jon secured a grant (with Dr. Erin Sanders-McDonagh and Dr. Nicola Montagna) from the British Academy, exploring the role played by women in nationalist movements in the UK. Jon has recently undertaken funded research in the field craft and artisanal sectors, and is now focussing his research in the fields of sustainability and environment
