He published the results in top tier journals, including Environmental Science & Technology, Journal of Contaminant Hydrology, and Applied and Environmental Microbiology.
Now serving as a Project Director for the Corteva Corporate Remediation Group, based in Charlotte, NC, James is responsible for investigation and remediation at Corteva sites in Latin America. James works in close collaboration with diverse project teams and travels frequently throughout the Latin American region. Most recently, he has been instrumental in helping students from Brazil enroll in the MS program in Environmental Engineering and Science.
