Tim James is an expert in science communication, making seemingly complex topics such as the periodic table and quantum mechanics entertaining for all ages. He is the author of Elemental: How the Periodic Table Can Now Explain (Nearly) Everything, a YouTuber, a public lecturer ( Institute of Physics) and an inventor — having discovered a chemical that converts wood into a liquid biofuel.
Raised by missionaries in Nigeria, Tim fell in love with science at the age of 15, when he ran science revision sessions for his classmates. After completing his degree, he turned down several PhD opportunities, preferring instead to go straight into the classroom and teach.
Tim is a brilliant teacher and public speaker who is regulalry asked to give his thoughts. To see his latest appearances go to his website.
Tim has written three books (and counting): ELEMENTAL: How the Periodic Table Can Now Explain (Nearly) Everything (2018), FUNDAMENTAL: How Quantum and Particle Physics Explain Absolutely Everything (Except Gravity) (2019) and his most recent, ASTRONOMICAL: From Quarks to Quasars, the Science of Space at its Strangest (2020).
