James graduated in 2020 with a M.Eng. degree in Engineering Science from the University of Oxford, where he specialised in Biomedical Engineering. Whilst at Oxford, James worked on designing devices capable of adaptively managing and treating chronic wounds. In his final year, he completed a project on a model-driven framework for neuromodulation-based blood pressure control with a view to treating patients with hypertension and chronic pain.
James joined the Unit in October 2020 as an MRC-funded D.Phil. student working under the supervision of Professor Tim Denison and Associate Professor Huiling Tan. His research focuses on brain computer interfaces and their application in the treatment of epilepsy through cortical modelling and adaptive closed-loop stimulation.
