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 PhD

Interested in supervising PhD students in the following areas:

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