For the colloquium, James described the evolution over the past 20 years of computational physics with large-array supercomputing at our national labs and its impact on AMO science.

James is renowned for the many collaborations he's involved in around the globe, providing critical modeling support for a remarkable variety of projects.

James specializes in state of the art numerical solution of the few-body Coulomb problem, especially processes involving ionization and detection of electron pairs.
