from Andrew Faulkner

I first met Jon when he started his PhD in Oxford. His extraordinary insight was clear for all to see at that early point in his career.

I also have fond memories of a musical evening at my house in Iffley with Jon and a couple of other Oxford Psychology colleagues during which he demonstrated considerable skill on the guitar as we played and drank the evening away.
