Dr Jonathan du Bois is a lecturer in electromechanical engineering, specialising in dynamic systems.
Jonathan's primary research interests lie in active vibration control and hybrid testing, encompassing hydraulic and electromechanical actuation technologies, robot kinematics, modal analysis and adaptive control, with a strong focus on aerospace applications.
Jonathan obtained his Master's degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Bristol in 2002. In 2004 he returned to the University of Bristol to pursue a PhD in adaptive fuselage response suppression for rotorcraft.
Following a brief period as a Visiting Scholar at the University of California, San Diego in 2008, he returned to the University of Bristol to take up a postdoctoral position on the Rotor Embedded Active Control Technologies (REACT) programme with AgustaWestland Helicopters.
Upon completion of this post he was appointed as a Research Associate on the Autonomous Systems Technology Related Airborne Evaluation & Assessment (ASTRAEA) project, developing advanced test facilities for autonomous air-to-air refuelling systems with Cobham Mission Equipment.
Jonathan moved to the University of Bath in 2012 to take up a Lecturing position in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
