Jeremy joined the Brennan Center in January of 2013 as a Research Associate for the Liberty and National Security Program. His work focused on government secrecy, transparency and privacy rights in the post-9/11 context. Prior to joining the Brennan Center, Jeremy worked as an intern at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington, DC, where he researched the social and political origins of isolationism for a forthcoming book on U.S. foreign policy. He had previously worked as a Teaching Assistant in the Sociology Department at Macalester College and as a Research Assistant at the University of Strasbourg in Strasbourg, France. His thesis on the creation of state-level regulatory systems received widespread national recognition and his research on the limitations of transparency as a regulatory tool was recently published as part of an edited collection on the challenges of Internet regulation.
Jeremy graduated summa cum laude from Macalester College in 2012 with a degree in Sociology and he will be attending the University of Pennsylvania Law School beginning in the fall of 2014.
