James obtained his Physics MSci from Royal Holloway University of London in 2017, with dissertations on the applications of magnetic nanoparticles in biomedicine as well as cryogenic noise measurements in HEMTs. He began his PhD in small-calibre guided projectiles at Cranfield the same year.
James is now a full-time PhD student investigating the enabling technologies of small-calibre guided projectiles, supervised by Prof. Amer Hameed & Dr John Economou and funded by BAE Systems. His current work is focused on dual-spin projectile design and stability as well as novel guidance methods. In addition to this, he is also responsible for delivering parts of the Gun Systems design module including Autofrettage, breach stress and barrel design.
