The focus of James' research is the experimental investigation of nuclear shape coexistence, whereby states of different shapes compete with each other at low excitation energies, within the same nucleus. This phenomenon is unique to the atomic nucleus and has proved to be one of the greatest challenges to contemporary nuclear theory.
James primarily performs experiments at the ISOLDE laboratory, part of the CERN accelerator facility in Geneva, Switzerland. During the 2017-2018 period he was the local expert in charge of the ISOLDE decay station, one of the permanent experiments at the laboratory.
