Research group: Design for Digital Fabrication
Now studying for a Ph.D., James’ research involves investigating Computer-Aided Design (CAD) methods with a focus on design potential in preparation for developments of Additive Manufacturing Technologies. Particular emphasis is on the generation of biomimetic functional surfaces; their roles are intended to be demonstrators of the CAD approaches developed within his studies.
