Hi folks, I am Jonathan and I’m your SU President for 2018/2019. I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology here at Huddersfield and recently completed my first year of my PhD in Psychology. So as you probably guessed, I thrive off people watching but no, I can’t read minds (although that would be cool!).
