Dr Jon Tandy
Jon is a senior lecturer in Physical Chemistry with the School of Human Sciences.
Dr Jon Tandy
Jon graduated in 2006 from The University of York with a MChem (Hons) in Chemistry. He then continued at York and was awarded a PhD in Chemistry in 2011. He subsequently undertook several postdoctoral research positions at the California Institute of Technology, The University of Leicester and Imperial College London. Jon was awarded a University Teaching Fellowship in 2018 and is an active member of the London Met creativity in assessment community of practice.
