Jonathan Reid is Professor of Physical Chemistry at the University of Bristol. After completing his PhD at the University of Oxford in 1997 (supervisor: C J S M Simpson), he moved to the University of Colorado (USA) as a postdoctoral research fellow (supervisor: S R Leone). He was appointed to a Lectureship at the University of Birmingham in 2000 before moving to the University of Bristol in March 2004.
Professor Reid has extensive experience in developing novel single particle techniques to study microphysical aerosol processes. His current research is tackling challenges in atmospheric science, drug delivery to the lungs, formulation science and disease transmission, and is funded by the EPSRC, BBSRC, MRC and NERC. He has published over 200 manuscripts in a wide range of peer-reviewed journals (PNAS, Nature Comm, Central Science, Applied and Environmental Microbiology, Pharmaceutical Research) and has held both an EPSRC Advanced Research Fellowship and an EPSRC Leadership Fellow. He was co-editor of Fundamentals and Applications in Aerosol Spectroscopy (Taylor & Francis, 2010, edited with Professor Ruth Signorell, ETH-Zurich).
Among his awards are the Royal Society of Chemistry Corday-Morgan Medal (2013), the Marlow Medal of the Faraday Division (2004) and the Harrison Memorial Medal (2001). He is a past President of the Aerosol Society of UK and Ireland, the current Editor-in-Chief of the AAAR journal Aerosol Science and Technology, and the director of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Aerosol Science.
