James is in the research team, where he works on brainstorming and evaluating charity intervention ideas.
Before CE, James completed his PhD at the University of Cambridge, where he studied haematopoietic (blood) stem cells. During his PhD, James also founded an early-stage project called Alma, and secured seed funding to develop wearable biosensors to monitor female health. After publishing his work from his PhD, James switched focus to the start-up space, in particular the alternative protein industry. However, after participating in an alternative protein course by the Good Food Institute, he decided that he would make more of an impact by founding a charity. James went through the CE Incubation Program when he decided to join the CE research team.
