Jim Hague is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Physical Sciences at The Open University with interdisciplinary research interests in theoretical physics. His main research activity is many body physics (both quantum and classical). He works on electron-phonon interactions and strong electronic interactions to investigate materials such as superconductors, Mott insulators and graphene (theoretical condensed matter physics). He also works on stroke forecasting (bio-medical physics / mathematical biology) and cold atom quantum simulators (interdisciplinary condensed matter / atomic physics).
Teaching duties at the Open University have included writing for the level 3 module "The Relativistic Universe", chairing and writing for the core level 2 module "The Physical World", and remote experiment development for the level 2 module "Practical Science". He has taught at several residential schools: "Electromagnetism" (level 3), "Quantum mechanics" (level 3), "Physics by Experiment" (level 2), and "Practicing science" (level 1).
Jim graduated from Oxford University in 1997, where he was an undergraduate at Jesus College. He then moved to Warwick University, obtaining his PhD in 2001. He has carried out postdoctoral research at the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems in Dresden, Germany, Oak Ridge National Lab and University of Cincinnati in the USA, and University of Leicester and Loughborough University in the UK. He has been a lecturer at The Open University since 2008.
