James Hadley studied a dual degree of Japanese and computing as his undergraduate. He then went on to study a master's degree in Buddhist Studies before moving on to a second master's degree in translation studies. In 2013, he completed his PhD in translation studies with a thesis challenging the hegemony of a small number of translation theories and cultural contexts in translation studies research outputs. After completing his PhD, James moved to China, where he taught and continued researching translation studies. He then became the translation studies researcher for the University of London's School of Advanced Study before moving to Dublin to take up his current post.

James' research interests are extremely broad and cover everything from the history surrounding early-modern translators between Japanese and Dutch to digital humanities approaches to the analysis of lexis in indirect translations (translations of translations). He is currently devoting most of his energies to systematising the study of the "concatenation effect", a phenomenon seemingly inherent to indirect translations.
