I'm Jono, an Electrical and Electronic Engineering Student at the University of Bristol. I'm an active mountaineer and climber, but also enjoy photography and film-making in my spare time. Scroll down to find out more, or click below to read about what I've been up to.

Studying at the University of Bristol from 2014 and graduating in 2018 on the MEng Electrical & Electronic Engineering program. I have developed strong engineering practices in a range of disciplines from circuit design, communications and signal processing to industrial and power electronics.
I am now interested in applying the skills I have developed through the degree program at Bristol to my interests in the natural world. Particularly, extreme environments that are currently at risk due to global climate change require extensive monitoring. I am looking to find applications of my electronic and electrical knowledge to monitoring, collecting and analysing data from extreme environments to encourage further investment in safeguarding their future.

I have been hillwalking for as long as I can remember, however thanks to many Friday afternoons spent at the Mile End Climbing Wall this slowly transistioned into a passion for rock climbing. Since joining the University of Bristol Mountaineering Club and University of Bristol Expeditions Society, I have had the opportunity to walk, climb and mountaineer all over Europe.
With the luxury of the Avon Gorge in Bristol, my climbing predominantly revolves around multipitched traditional climbing. However, trip to Portland, Snowdonia, Scotland, the Dolomites, Pyrenees and French Alps have all expanded my horizons to pursue the disciplins or sport climbing, mountaineering and Via Ferrata.
For the academic year of 2016-2017 I had the pleasure to act as President of the University's Expeditions society. Over the year, we grew to a society of 300+ members, ran fortnightly trips to the UK's National Parks, held talks from alumni discussing their expeditions and undertook a Winter Mountaineering trip to Scotland.
It has been a fantastic opportunity to develop my own skills in teamwork and the outdoors, as well as watch others develop at the same time. If you're interested in finding more out about UBES you can find their website here.
