Dr James Parkhurst

Postdoctoral Research Associate

James’ role at the Rosalind Franklin Institute focuses on the use of simulation, data processing and analysis to aid in the development of new methods for cryo electron tomography of biological samples. His research interests include the development of realistic digital models of electron microscopes, the design of improved tomographic data collection strategies, and the development of software for tomographic data processing and analysis.

Prior to joining the Rosalind Franklin Institute, James obtained his PhD in Molecular Biology at the MRC LMB at the University of Cambridge and worked at Diamond Light Source as a Scientific Programmer developing software for the integration and analysis of X-ray diffraction data for macromolecular crystallography.
