Dr Dean James

Stipendiary Lecturer in Physical Chemistry




I am providing Physical Chemistry tutorials across all three years at St John's college during the 2017/18 academic year, while Professor Compton is on sabbatical. I have previously taught at both Wadham and Hertford Colleges, and studied for my DPhil at St Edmund Hall.

Research Interests

My research concerns the development of optical sensing methodologies for the minute liquid samples encountered within the field of microfluidics. Most recently I have been focusing on the development and miniaturisation of optical-cavity-based detection techniques, with the intention of producing microcavity sensors for chemical and nanoparticle sensing.
