Personal profile


Dr Jonathan Hinks received a Master of Physics from the University of Salford in 2003 before completing his PhD in Radiation Damage in Copper Indium Diselenide in 2007 under the supervision of Prof Stephen Donnelly. He was then appointed a Research Fellow and spent four years designing, building and operating the Microscope and Ion Accelerator for Materials Investigations (MIAMI) facility which incorporates a transmission electron microscope with an ion accelerator to allow dynamic radiation damage processes to be investigated at the nanoscale.

In 2011, the EMMA research group and MIAMI facility moved to the University of Huddersfield. Jonathan is now a Reader in Radiation Damage in Materials and is establishing a new state-of-the-art MIAMI-2 with £3.5M of funding from EPSRC.
