Jonathan Codd is currently a Senior Lecturer in Integrative Vertebrate Biology and member of the Computational and Evolutionary Biology research grouping within the Faculty of Life Sciences. His research has focussed on functional constraints during breathing and locomotion in mammals and birds. He obtained a Bachelor of Science degree with Honours in animal biology from the Flinders University of South Australia (1997), a Master of Science degree in animal physiology from The University of Adelaide (2001) and a Ph.D from the University of Bonn (2004) working with Prof. S.F. Perry on the physiology and mechanics of ventilation in birds. After completion of his PhD, Jonathan undertook a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Bonn (2004-5) where he developed his interests in respiratory biology.
In 2005 Jonathan moved to the UK to take up his Lectureship position within FLS. his research group has been built with ongoing funding from The Leverhulme Trust, BBSRC and NERC.
Jonathan has organised several symposia and conferences on respiration and locomotion and is a member of the Society for Experimental Biology and The Anatomical Society.
