In addition to teaching at OSU, Jeremy founded his own company, Expert TA, LLC, a provider of educational software that is based on technology he developed during the course of completing his Ph.D. work at North Carolina State University. Jeremy also volunteers with Tulsa Young Professionals, Big Brothers Big Sisters and First Robotics, a national campaign to help students become interested in science and technology at an early age. He says the advice he offers to those hoping to achieve success may sound cliché, but it still rings true.
“Make sure you pursue something that you are passionate about,” he says. “Don’t choose a career path because it’s what your father did or exclusively because of salary.”
