Jeremy's research focuses on questions of global health governance and global health politics. He is the author of four books and co-editor of two recently edited volumes. He has published more than 30 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters in a wide variety of outlets and is a member of the editorial board of Global Health Governance. He is also Chair of the Global Health Section of the International Studies Association and a member of ISA's Governing Council and Professional Development Committee. His most recent book, Global Health Governance and International Society, was published by Oxford University Press in 2018. He is currently completing a book manuscript tentatively titled Globalization and Health, and he is the co-editor of the forthcoming Oxford Handbook of Global Health Politics

His current research centres on questions of global responses to transnational health issues. In particular, he is interested in understanding the conditions under which states and non-state actors are willing to collaborate to address infectious disease outbreaks and to sustain international organisations and regimes focused on global health. This takes the form of researching the processes of norm internalisation within the International Health Regulations, examining efforts to reform the World Health Organization in the aftermath of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, and considering the role of the English School's notion of international society in explaining the emergence of global health cooperation over the past generation.

Jeremy earned his BA in political science and global development studies at Grinnell College, his MA in political science at the University of Iowa, and his PhD in political science (emphases in international relations and comparative politics) at the University of Iowa. Prior to joining the staff at the Australian National University, he taught at San Diego State University, Grinnell College, and the University of Minnesota Duluth.
