Dr Jonathan Pearce FInstP is a Principal Research Scientist at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), UK, responsible for realising and maintaining temperature measurement standards to ensure practical traceability of measurements to the SI unit of temperature, the kelvin. This involves developing fit-for-purpose measurement systems and instrumentation, developing numerical and analytical models of physical systems, and assessment of measurement uncertainty. He is a specialist in thermocouple thermometry, platinum resistance thermometry, metallurgy and phase change materials, and is experienced in providing robust, practical contact thermometry solutions for process measurement and control to a wide range of stakeholders across government, industry and academia. He has led several large collaborative projects aimed at solving process control problems in high value manufacturing. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics and represents the UK on the European Association of National Metrology Institutes (EURAMET) Technical Committee for Thermometry, as well as Task Groups of the Consultative Committee for Thermometry at the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM). He has published 135 technical papers.
