James received his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University in 2015. After graduation, James worked at Valeo North America as a R&D engineer, where he led automotive exterior lighting projects for General Motors until July of 2018. While working, James received his Master of Professional Engineering degree in Embedded Lighting System in Paris, France. During his years in industry, James realized the necessity of smarter robots in both the manufacturing setting and our daily lives, and decided to pursue a master's in robotics at Northwestern. His areas of interests include (but are not limited to) machine learning and virtual/augmented reality, with which he wants to build more effective and natural human-robot interaction.
