Tony D James is a Professor at the University of Bath and Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, who currently holds a prestigious Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award. (2017-2022). He has developed a broad interdisciplinary approach to research, with an underpinning focus on the development of modular sensors where he has pioneered a range of reporting regimes.

His research interests include many aspects of Supramolecular chemistry, including:
molecular recognition
fluorescent sensor design
fluorescence imaging
theranostic systems
chiral recognition
saccharide recognition
anion recognition
sensors for reactive oxygen species (ROS)
probes for redox imbalance
