Overview

James is an Honorary Associate Professor in the Graduate School of Education and an Associate Professor at the Univesity of Southampton.

A psychologist by training, James carries out quantitative and mixed-method research at the intersection of Educational Effectiveness and Developmental Psychology.

He is particulary interested in studies that unify these two areas; research that extends Rutter's contributions across both fields (e.g., "the Isle of Wight Studies" and, "15,000 Hours").  As a result, James studies how children's development and educational attainment are influenced by mechanisms of risk, incidents of resilience, and protective educational and social systems.  This research overlaps strongly with the work that is carried out in Exeter's Centre for Special Educational Needs and Disability - particularly children's Social Emotional Mental Health.
