Vice President of Consulting Agency
James is a Ph.D. candidate in Bioengineering and a research assistant at the Center for Theoretical Biological Physics, both at Rice University. His research is mainly focused on understanding how animals and humans learn and how they retrieve memory. Specifically, he has modeled actin reorganization in dendritic spines—small protrusions of neuronal dendrites. The plasticity of dendritic spines is commonly hypothesized to underlie learning and retrieving memory. James received his Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering from Louisiana Tech University. In his days off, James enjoys traveling and experiencing new cultures.
