Jim Davies is Professor of Software Engineering and Director of the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Health Data Science.  He is leading the development of data standards and infrastructure for clinical and laboratory data across a network of NIHR Biomedical Research Centres (BRCs), as part of the NIHR Health Informatics Collaborative.  He is also the Lead Data Scientist for the National Consortium for Intelligent Medical Imaging, funded by Innovate UK. 

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.
