Biography

Jonathan joined the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in 2013, and works as a research scientist for the Marine and Environmental Chemistry Group at the Marine Sciences Laboratory (MSL) in Sequim, Washington. Prior to coming to MSL, Jonathan’s research at the University of Washington at Tacoma focused on historical trends of harmful algal blooms. Jonathan’s areas of expertise include in trace metals and organics in marine waters, tissues, and sediments. Jonathan is the MSL manager of, Project ENVVEST, a cooperative program among the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard & Intermediate Maintenance Facility, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Washington State Department of Ecology, and local stakeholders to leverage and extend efforts to help improve environmental quality and assist in meeting water quality goals for Sinclair and Dyes Inlets within Puget Sound. Within Project ENVVEST, Jonathan is developing novel ecotoxicity monitoring protocol using passive samplers. Jonathan is also a collaborator on the Uranium from Seawater project funded by the Department of Energy, which was most recently featured in Reuters Technology. In addition to his research, Jonathan holds qualifications as a Radiation Protection Technician for the USDOE, and works to ensure safe operations at MSL.
