Jonathan gained his PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2008 and joined the University of Tasmania as Lecturer in Classics in History & Classics in the School of Humanities in July 2009.

He is the recipient of numerous teaching awards at UTAS, and is a driving force behind a revitalisation of the Classics curriculum and its delivery that has seen enrolments in the discipline nearly double since 2010.

In 2018 Jonathan published a book examining the love poems of the Propertius through Cambridge University Press (Introspections and Engagement in Propertius). He is currently researching the reception of Catullus in the context of twentieth-century fascism.
