Jim Davies is Professor of Software Engineering and Director of Clinical Informatics for the Oxford NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC).  He is leading the development of data standards and infrastructure for clinical and laboratory data across a network of BRCs, as part of the NIHR Health Informatics Collaborative.  He is also the Director of Professional Programmes for the Department of Computer Science, overseeing the development and delivery of advanced programmes in data science, software engineering, and cybersecurity.

His research is focussed upon the development of new model- and metadata-driven techniques for big data engineering: techniques that support the automatic generation and configuration of software, and the automatic management and processing of data, based upon precise, abstract descriptions of structure, process, and intended interpretation.   This work has been informed by practical, large-scale application in clinical research, healthcare delivery, and electronic governance.
