Role as Faculty:

Teachers are people who love to learn new things and want to share that love of learning with others. James feels fortunate that, in his role as a faculty member, gets to share his fascination with chemistry both in the classroom and through hands-on learning in the laboratory. More than anything, James  hopes that students come to realize that learning about chemistry means learning about the world around us and within us and helps us to find solutions to societal problems.

Research Interests:

In recent years, James has worked on projects related to plant oil analysis and development of new catalysts for biodiesel production, evaluation of antiviral properties of extracts from local plant sources and, most recently, a study of how storage conditions affect the alpha acid content of hop varieties (which are responsible for bittering in beer). Undergraduate students have been an essential part of all these projects. There are many topics in the fields of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry that interest him - He wishes he had time to investigate more of them!
