James is a PhD student in Dr. Joel Coats's pesticide toxicology lab. His current projects include the synthesis of biorational insect repellents, the development of new potential nematicides, and the development of new synthetic chemistry methods. With a strong background in organic chemistry, mathematics, and scientific computing, James also uses computational chemistry and numerical models to direct chemical synthesis and quantify and predict structure-activity relationships. James also takes an active role at Iowa State University as the current Vice President for the Graduate and Professional Student Senate, and currently serves on several GPSS and university committees.
