James is a member of the following School research institute:
I am Head of School and Professor of Extra-Galactic Astronomy within the School of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh, and also part of the Scottish Universities Physics Alliance.
I am an elected Fellow of the Royal Society, of the Royal Society of Edinburgh and of the Institute of Physics, and have previously held a European Research Council Advanced Fellowship and a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award.
My research interests are in extragalactic astronomy and cosmology: galaxy formation and evolution, the cosmic history of star formation, the first galaxies and cosmic reionization, and the connection between the growth of galaxies and black holes.
I have taught many courses at various levels within the University, most recently the Level-11 Radiation & Matter course, details of which can be found at http://www.roe.ac.uk/~jsd/Rad_Matt.html.
