Jeremy obtained a B.A. in Natural Sciences from Cambridge University and a PhD from the University of Bristol, working in the lab of Professor Pete Cullen. During this time, he examined membrane trafficking pathways regulated by the phosphoinositide-binding family of Sorting Nexins.

After his PhD, he moved to the laboratory of Prof Juan Martin-Serrano in the Infectious Diseases department of King's College London to examine how the ESCRT-machinery is hijacked by HIV-1 to allow its release from infected cells. Here, he described a novel and unexpected role for the ESCRT-machinery in cytokinesis and characterised the involvement of ESCRT-III proteins in an Aurora-B regulated abscission checkpoint.

After his postdoc, Jeremy moved to establish a laboratory in the Division of Cancer Studies at King's College London as a Wellcome Trust Research Career Development Fellow. here he continued to focus on membrane trafficking machineries and discovered a new role for the ESCRT-machinery in rebuilding the nuclear envelope during cell division.

In 2017 he was awarded a Wellcome Trust Senior Fellowship and EMBO Young Investigator awards and was seconded from King’s to the Francis Crick Institute, where he continues his studies on membrane remodelling during cell division.
