Jeremy’s research has focused on interfacing biology, bioinformatics, and engineering. He was the first person to take genome sequence information and develop predictive mathematical models of bacterial metabolism, which started a significant global effort culminating in multiple papers with about 1,000 citations. Stemming from an early interest in genomics technology, Jeremy chose to later work with Dr. George Church at Harvard Medical School in Boston for his post-doctoral studies. This work eventually developed into today’s NGS sequencing technology. Jeremy earned a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas, Arlington, and a Ph.D. in Bioengineering from The Univerity of California, San Diego.
