Research Interests


James graduated from the University of Southampton in 2007 with an MEng in Computer Science, with a particular focus on complex data processing and computational intelligence techniques. He went on to do a PhD focusing on the identification of human behaviour patterns from long-term health and wellness monitoring systems. This work focused on the application signal processing and computational intelligence to the processing of multi-parametric data sets from multi-sensor environments.

In 2012 James moved to the University of Warwick to take up a post-doctoral position working on the Unobtrusive Smart Environments for Independent Living (USEFIL) project, specifically on wearable devices for assisted living. Jame’s work on USEFIL involved the development of a smart-watch app to detect physical activity and estimate step count and energy consumption; and the validation of these techniques against whole body calorimitery.

Work in a simmilar vein continued with the Auto-Motive project, which developing a sensor based self-management system for Bipolar Disorder. James' work on this project focused on the processing of data from a multi-sensor environment and the application of computational intelligence techniques to this data set to predict the onset of manic and depressive episodes.
