James studied Chemical Engineering at the University of Manchester from 2010 to 2014, obtaining a 2:1 Masters of Engineering. During his final year, James worked under the supervision of Professor Gardner on his dissertation project, investigating drug resistance in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) using infrared spectroscopy.
After graduating, James returned to the group in September 2014 as a PhD research student, working in collaboration with Dr Gianfelice Cinque from the Diamond Light Source synchrotron in Didcot, Oxfordshire. James’ project focuses on the development of experimental and data processing methods for live cell infrared imaging, as well as continuing work on drug resistance in RCC. James has also collaborated with Professor Maria Marques from the University of Coimbra, Portugal, on her work investigating the effects of chemotherapy drugs on breast cancer cells.
