Jeremy Frey studied Chemistry at Oxford University followed by a NATO/SERC fellowship at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory. In 1984 he became a lecturer at the University of Southampton, where he is now Professor of Physical Chemistry.
His research interests include interfacial spectroscopy, nanoscale laser x-ray scattering and in the application of modern software, notably semantic technologies to improve the way research in chemistry is conducted. He investigates how e-Science infrastructure supports scientific research with an emphasis on the way digital infrastructure can enhance the intelligent creation, dissemination and analysis of scientific data.
