From 1990 until joining the Office of Radiation Safety, Jim worked as a health physics consultant with a Chicago-area consulting firm, where he provided consulting and teaching assistance to many clinical, research, and industrial facilities. In 2000, he was promoted to associate director and was assigned the University radiation safety officer responsibilities in November 2002.
