Department of Geography at King's College, London - Leverhulme early career research fellow
James is a Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow based in the Department of Geography at King's College, London. He is a broadly trained geographer, landscape ecologist and environmental systems modeller with an interest in understanding how science and society can ensure the sustainability of environmental systems.
Previously, James was based in the Center for Systems Integration and Sustainability at Michigan State University, USA. There he worked on the development of an ecological-economic model of a managed forest landscape to examine management and policy options for the managed forests of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
James received his PhD in Geography from King's College London in July 2007. Research initiated during his PhD examines the potential impact of spatially distributed land-use decision-making on ecological patterns and processes (wildfire and vegetation dynamics) in a traditional multifunctional Mediterranean landscape.
James also received an MSc in Environmental Monitoring, Modelling and Management (with Distinction) and a BSc (Hons) in Geography (First class) from King's College, London. Work from his MSc dissertation was later published in the Proceeding of National Academy of Sciences
