Jonathan earned a PhD in the field of Marine Geomatics from the University of New Brunswick (UNB, Fredericton, Canada), specialising in multibeam data processing and analysis. After UNB, Jonathan worked as a researcher at the University of New Hampshire (UNH, Durham, USA) for nearly four years, building upon his body of work developed at UNB. During his time in academia, Jonathan participated in over forty research mapping cruises, many of which were Sea Acceptance Trials which relied on his skill set as an expert multibeam data analyst. He also ran a side consultancy with thirty significant projects in which he provided specialized data processing, analysis and trouble shooting.
Jonathan joined QPS in 2014 and put his multibeam knowledge to work immediately by making many improvements in our Geocoder implementation, FMGT. He also played a key technical and advisory role in the design and implementation of Qimera, eventually becoming the Qimera Product Manager shortly after its launch in 2015. In late 2016, he was appointed head of Product Management, a role in which he works with development, support and sales staff to achieve our goals and desires for the entire product line. His primary focus the past year has been to guide the Product Management team to build new and innovative workflows between the products.
