James completed his undergraduate in Mechanical Engineering at Trinity College Dublin in 2011 before carrying transitioning to Neuroscience and completing his MSc at King's College London in 2014 where he worked with Dr. Abdul Hye, identifying plasma-based biomarkers for Alzheimer's disease. He has since worked as a Network Analyst at SGN Edinburgh before moving back to Neuroscience, working as a research assistant in the Engel Group at the Royal College of Surgeons Ireland. There, he was awarded a Marie Curie funded PhD opportunity where he identified a possible role of the P2X7 receptor in contributing to drug-refractory status epilepticus. In April 2021, James moved to the Wong lab to contribute to the ongoing research, observing the relationship between neurons and microglia in the developing brain.
