Research School of Engineering

Jeremy has had various roles at ANU since graduating from there in the late 1990's including research assistant, entrepreneur, student, sessional educator and currently academic lecturer.  Jeremy has been responsible for developing, delivering and coordinating courses in engineering at ANU for both undergraduate and postgraduate coursework since 2007. Since 2011 he has been involved with five ANU education grants, in 2014 led an Office for Learning and Teaching (OLT) Seed Grant, and has secured over 100 short-term mobility scholarships for engineering students. 

In the last five years he has lead innovations in humanitarian engineering education, including the first later-year dedicated humanitarian engineering course in Australia, the inclusion of for-credit short-term overseas experiences into engineering, and most recently enabling ANU to become the first Australian university to be part of the US National Academy of Engineering (NAE) Grand Challenge Scholars Program.

In 2016 Jeremy was recognised for his work at ANU through an Australian Award for University Teaching (AAUT) Citation for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning, and in 2017 was awarded an AAUT Award for Teaching Excellence for leadership in humanitarian engineering education in Australia over the last 10 years.  He is a member of Engineers Australia and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA).
