Overview
??????????James is currently the Senior Technology Manager for the Weber Lab Department of Biomedical Informatics (DBMI) in the Blavatnik Institute at Harvard Medical School. Specializing in managing and planning for principal Investigators, research staff and technical personnel in implementing R series NIH funded research in the domains of social network analysis, data mining for hypothesis testing and identification of patients for clinical trials.

Previously as a consultant, James managed a range of large to small teams specializing in Mid-Atlantic consumer lending bank mergers and acquisitions, consolidating line of business IT systems, mortgage industry automation and the optimization of heterogeneous call centers. This highly dynamic and competitive environment required James to ethically navigate regulatory frameworks and the security of consumer information while delivering emerging e-commerce technology in the first decade of the 21st century. In addition to leadership in banking and mortgage, James led the implementation and design of the first internet based national organ matching system for the United Network for Organ Sharing and returned to work three years later as a full time employee to help in managing the rollout of emerging technologies in the frequently changing regulatory and political environment of organ donation and procurement.

James has traveled and spoke on behalf of clients in negotiating stakeholder requirements in complex business and healthcare environments for over 20 years. He is a proven leader who employs big picture first principle methodologies in solving complex problems and delivering results.
