Personal profile

Research interests

James's research is in the development of ferroelectric composites for sensing, piezoelectric energy harvesting and energy storage applications. This includes:

  • Understanding the interaction between constituent phases on the inherent properties of the active phase using a combination of numerical modelling and experimental techniques
  • Tuning effective properties of materials depending on specific application and environment
  • Developing advanced fabrication methods, primarily of porous ferroelectric ceramic matrices, to produce composite structures that maximise performance

Willing to supervise doctoral students

Interested in supervising PhD students in the following areas:

  • Functional ceramics
  • Piezo- and ferroelectric materials
  • Energy harvesting
  • Materials for sensors
  • Dielectric materials
  • Porous materials
