Professor Jim Briggs
Professor of Informatics
I have a BA in Computer Science and Mathematics and a DPhil in Computer Science from the University of York. After graduation I worked in the Department of Computer Science at York until 1995 when I moved to Portsmouth.
My early research interests were in software engineering. I was a member of the York Ada Compiler project, and later in my time at York I worked on debugging large-scale distributed systems. I also worked in computer applications to sport, in which role I worked with Yorkshire County Cricket Club and developed the computerised scoring system that controlled their electronic scoreboard for many years.
Since about 1998, I have been working in the field of health informatics, initially in telemedicine, telecare and telehealth (with Richard Curry), but more recently in clinical outcome modelling (with David Prytherch).
