James graduated in 2010 from the University of Sheffield having obtained his MEng in Chemical Engineering. His final year research project involved investigating post translational modifications in cytoskeletal protein structures with the aim of contributing to more accurate diagnostic methods for prostate cancer. Throughout his degree he was involved in a number of placements at Kimberly Clark where he worked on various projects associated with minimising waste, improving efficiency and general environmental performance. James is an avid film fan and tries to watch as much live music as possible.
