About James

by James

I’m an organic chemist originally from Glen Williams, Ontario, Canada. I obtained my Ph.D. in organic chemistry from McGill University (2006) and then did a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at MIT (2006-2008). In December 2008 I moved to Jerusalem, Israel, where I worked as a medicinal chemist at HUJI. In February 2010 I started tutoring organic chemistry online through Skype, and started MasterOrganicChemistry.com . Since then I’ve spent >1000 hours working 1-on-1 with undergraduates taking introductory organic chemistry.

MasterOrganicChemistry.com has been featured in Chemical and Engineering News and in BoingBoing. Since April 2010 it has attracted over 200,000 pageviews.

I currently live in a small town in Ontario you’ve probably never heard of.

You can read about some of my research here  and here.  My personal site is here.

Your work is absolutely fantastic, helpful and unfortunately underappreciated. Thank you for founding Master organic chemistry. This websites has helped me a lot and also several students across the global . I am surprised that I am the first to address your work at least on this website and no one has ever commented any thankful note to you on this website .
