Jonathan Bratt graduated with a bachelor’s degree in physics and math from Geneva College. He obtained his Ph.D. in physics from MIT, where he conducted research in the field of Lattice QCD. Specifically, his work involved understanding how the properties of protons and neutrons arise from the interactions of quarks and gluons. As a graduate student, he was a TA for a number of courses, ranging from the introductory physics sequence to the junior-level laboratory course.
After graduating from MIT, Jonathan joined the faculty of Huntington University in Indiana, where he taught introductory physics to science majors and conceptual physics to non-science majors. He also taught an introductory electronics lab course.
