James joined Zyvex Labs in 2010 as a Research Scientist. Before returning to his roots — hot STM of hydrogen and disilane on Si(001) — when he joined Zyvex, he worked at UCSB, UCLA and HRL, the National Institute for Materials Science (Tsukuba, Japan) as an Independent Research Fellow, and was a member of the Oxford University QIP IRC. Finally, he worked with Prof. Renner at the University of Geneva setting up a new research group. Throughout his career, he has used STM to study atomic-scale chemistry, atomic-scale self-assembled nanostructures and epitaxial growth processes on semiconductors, with a particular emphasis on close collaboration with computational modellers. Of 76 peer-reviewed articles (>1500 citations), 22 relate to hydrogen, ammonia (NH3) and disilane on Si(001) and ~50% were written jointly with DFT modelers. He has a BEng and MA (Oxon) in Metallurgy and Science of Materials (1993) and a DPhil (Oxon) in Materials Science (1996).
