James has recently finished his PhD investigating the effect of arduous odours on community members. His PhD research involved multiple tools including surveys, interviews, as well as online communication platform to provide best practice approaches for industry regarding community engagement. James has also provided commentary and research on varying technology relating to odour and olfaction including Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry/Olfactometry, the role of e-noses in odour monitoring, as well as olfactometers.

James is also currently working on a range of additional topics that have included collaborations with other universities such as USyd, ANU, and UTS. In particular, James has been involved with research and implementation regarding detection dogs, Humanitarian Engineering, as well as improving educational designs for future engineers. His background in Psychology and diverse portfolio of research topics means that he’s often called up to assist in novel ventures within the UNSW Odour Group and UNSW Engineering as a whole.
