James holds a Bachelor of Arts, Honours in History, and a Master of Social Policy.

James joined the Research and Policy Centre in July 2018. Since then, he has worked on various different disciplinary teams and projects. His most recent work with the Inclusive Communities Team includes submissions to the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety, service development with the BSL Aged Care division, and research and policy work focusing on people with disability and the NDIS. James is interested in equity and access issues (across both areas) and has a special interest in how these areas intersect with employment, housing and homelessness policy.
