After interning at an intellectual property law firm, James became interested in patents, which led him back to school for a science degree. Physics was the obvious choice of study, since it was his favorite subject in high school.

James’ undergraduate research focused on the preliminary analysis of Jefferson Lab (GlueX) data in search of cross sections for the photoproduction of a photon and a rho-meson (gamma + p -> gamma’ + p’ + rho).

While completing his undergraduate degree, James worked at Sun Nuclear Corporation as a product support specialist/implementation specialist, where he learned about the industry side of quality assurance for radiation therapy.

James is interested in therapeutic medical physics. He is especially interested in industry improvements, as they pertain to imaging modalities for diagnosis, treatment planning, image guidance, dosimetry, artificial intelligence, radiopharmaceuticals, and proton FLASH therapy.

In his free time, James enjoys skateboarding, playing soccer & basketball, off-roading, song writing, attending live performances, and he especially enjoys completing small DIY projects.
