He wrote his MA thesis on the urban and environmental history of Vienna in the late nineteenth century, his MSPPM capstone was related to issues of urban food production and distribution, and his MAGES capstone was on the experience of Vienna during the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918–20.

Jeremy hopes to utilize his understanding of urban governance both past and present to better shape urban spaces of the future.
