Prof Jon Keating FRS
Sedleian Professor of Natural Philosophy
I went to Moorside High School, a comprehensive school in Swinton, near Manchester, and then, for Sixth Form, to Eccles College. I was an undergraduate student here in Oxford, at New College, where I read Physics. I did my PhD at the University of Bristol, in Theoretical Physics, advised by Professor Sir Michael Berry FRS. I held a Lectureship at the University of Manchester before moving to the University of Bristol, where I became the Henry Overton Will Professor of Mathematics. I was, at various times, the Head of the School of Mathematics and the Dean of Science in Bristol. I was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2009. I moved to Oxford to take up the Sedleian Chair in 2019.
