Jagjeevan graduated from University College London (UCL) with a Masters in Chemistry (MSci). During his degree, he investigated the potential of p-type delafossite materials as a photocathode for photoelectrochemical water splitting. He also spent a year at Northwestern University, as part of a study exchange programme, where he worked with Sir Fraser Stoddart. His work at Northwestern involved understanding how molecular recognition plays a pivotal role in chemical and biological systems through processes such as enzyme catalysis and signal transduction.
Jagjeevan joined the Tribology Group at Imperial College London in October 2019, under the supervision of Professor Daniele Dini and Dr. James Ewen. His research looks into understanding the interaction between formulated lubricants and engineered surfaces. The project is sponsored by Baker Hughes, a GE Company (BHGE).
