He has published widely on combustion and combustion-related topics and is a member of the Combustion and Granular Materials Group. He is a Chartered Engineer and Fellow of the Institution of Chemical Engineers.

Dr Johns completed his PhD here at Cambridge in 1999 and then joined us as a University Lecturer. He was awarded an ExxonMobil Engineering Teaching Fellowship in 2003 and became a Senior Lecturer in 2005.
