James is an Australian Research Council Future Fellow and Associate Professor in the Department of Physics at MQ, and currently leads the QMApp group.

His background ranges from diamond chemical vapour deposition and materials science to optics, spectroscopy and single photon sources. He completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Waterloo in Canada and subsequently spent 6 months in the lab of Dr Donna Strickland doing ultrafast laser physics. James then took a position in industry at DALSA Inc., a CCD and CMOS image sensor and camera company. He then decided to take up post-graduate studies, and completed his PhD at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland, in diamond chemical vapour deposition and plasma spectroscopy. His supervisors were Professor Phil John and Professor John Wilson. The main interest was to understand the role of C2 in diamond CVD using a fascinating technique called cavity ring-down spectroscopy. For this work James built a spectrometer and measured the concentration of the C2 radical inside a microwave plasma.

James was a research fellow at the Micro Analytical Research Centre in the School of Physics at the University of Melbourne in the group of Professor Steven Prawer from 2003 to 2006. In this role James developed a technique to grow single Nickel defects in diamond and a technique to grow diamonds on optical fibres. Some of James' work was patented and now commercialisation is being pursued by QCV (qcvictoria.com ).
