Dr Jeremy Metz

Jeremy heads up the image analysis activities for the Wellcome Trust Biomedical Informatics Hub. Since 2017, he has also been the Hub's Workshop Director, responsible for the training provided for all members of the University on a wide range of biological and medically relevant topics.

Jeremy is a physicist by training, having started his research career working on quantum optics and quantum information under the supervision of Professor Sir Peter Knight and Dr Almut Beige in the Quantum Optics and Laser Science group within the Physics Department of Imperial College London.

His interest in biology was cultivated during his Postdoctoral appointment at the Department of Biophysics and Physiology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. There, while working on modelling the protein interaction networks that regulate mitotic spindle dynamics, he initiated and led the image processing research efforts of the group of Dr Ao Ma.

Since coming to Exeter in 2012, Jeremy has come to be recognized as the image analysis expert, both within the Biosciences and in other colleges. His own research interests, while varied, generally relate to applying quantitative data analysis techniques and mathematical modelling to biological problems.
