Jeremy completed his PhD in microbiology at The University of Queensland in 2011 as part of the Advanced Water Management Center. He then moved to San Diego, USA to complete a postdoctoral position working under the tutelage of Prof. Forest Rohwer at San Diego State University. While there he studied the interactions of bacteriophage with mucosal surfaces that provided a non-host-derived immunity.
Jeremy’s research group studies bacteriophage and investigates their role and function in the human body. Projects in his research group include the bacteriophage adherence to mucus (BAM) model; utilizing microfluidic devices to create life-like mucosal surfaces; investigating the dynamics of bacteriophage diffusion in complex media and fluids; bioengineering bacteriophages and nanoparticles for prospective biotechnology applications.
