Jagjeevan graduated from University College London (UCL) with a master's 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, working with Nobel Laureate Sir Fraser Stoddart. His work at Northwestern involved understanding how molecular recognition plays a pivotal role in chemical and biological systems through enzyme catalysis and signal transduction processes.

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 investigated the interaction between formulated lubricants and engineered surfaces. The project was sponsored by Baker Hughes. In October 2023, Jagjeevan graduated with a PhD in Mechanical Engineering.
