James joined the faculty of the University of Miami Libraries in the fall of 2018 as the STEM librarian and is currently a librarian assistant professor at the Otto G. Richter Library on the Coral Gables campus.
His research interests currently focus on the development of information and critical literacy skills within the design and science disciplines.
