James uses silicon photonic microring resonators to design multiplexed protein arrays with a particular focus on developing clinically and/or biologically relevant diagnostic panels. Current work is centered around glioblastoma multiforme, the most common and aggressive malignant primary brain tumor. He also is developing microring resonators as a gradient-compatible refractive index based detector for HPLC.

When not in lab, James enjoys camping and hiking with his wife, playing with his dogs (Jacob and Bo), college football, reading, exploring the great midwest, watching movies, and traveling to far away places. He is also an avid fan of Disney, particularly Disney World.
