Jonathan has studied social anthropology for almost 20 years. He has conducted research and published on: addiction, arms trade, automated vehicles, bicycle tours, cannabis, coffee, Colombia, conflict, Covid, emergency services, ethics, Fairtrade, holidays, peace processes, security, sound, teaching, trade shows, ultra-marathons, and violence.
