Jeremias’ research focuses on technology, innovation policy, and the future of work in the European Union and beyond. He is a Fellow of Magdalen College. Jeremias read law at Oxford, Paris, and Harvard Law School, and has held visiting teaching and/or research positions at institutions including Hong Kong University, the Max Planck Institute Hamburg, Renmin Law School Beijing, University College London, the University of Vienna, and Yale Law School.

His book Humans as a Service (OUP 2018, Paperback 2019) explores the promise and perils of work in the gig economy across the world. It was awarded the 2019 St Petersburg Private Law Prize, and has been translated into multiple languages. Jeremias’ research on innovation policy and labour market regulation is frequently drawn on by governments and international organisations, including the European Commission, the International Labour Organisation, and the OECD, and has been cited by courts, policy documents, and news organisations in multiple jurisdictions. He has served on the World Economic Forum’s Global Future Council on the New Agenda for Work, Wages, and Job Creation.

Jeremias is the author of Great Debates in EU Law (with Prof Sanja Bogojević, 2021), and the founding editor of the EU Law in the Member States Series (Hart), exploring the impact of Union law across the Member States. His contributions to that series include The EU Charter of Fundamental Rights in the Member States (2020, with M Bobek), Air Passenger Rights, Ten Years On (2016, with M Bobek), and Viking, Laval and Beyond (2015, with M Freedland). He is currently writing an introduction to EU Labour and Internal Market Law for OUP’s Clarendon Law Series.

Together with Professor Abi Adams-Prassl of the Oxford Department of Economics, Jeremias also writes on the law and economics of fragmenting labour markets and access to justice. His work has been recognised by a number of prizes for teaching, research, and public impact, including the Wedderburn Prize and the Apgar Prize, an Oxford University Teaching Award, a British Academy Rising Star Engagement Award (for work on EU labour law), an O2RB Excellence in Impact Award, and an ESRC Outstanding Impact in Public Policy Prize.
