From January-June 2017 he was a Fulbright CyberSecurity Scholar at New York University: his blog is here.

Universitatae de Vest din Timişoara recently conferred an Honorary Doctorate on Davenport. These are the reasons. Davenport tried to say "thank you" (in Romanian and English). The degree certificate is pretty impressive, as were the supporters.

**Works in Computer Algebra**, where he is an author of a
textbook,
many papers
(old HTML version here)
(see here for recent ones, and his ResearchGate profile),
posters
and presentations, and editor-in-chief of conference volumes: CICM 2011, SYNASC 2016 and ICMS 2018.
See Mathematical Reviews on JHD for a list that they consider "mathematical" (needs a subscription).
He is a member of the MEGA (Méthodes Effectives en Géometrie Algébrique) Advisory Board.

Having been General Chair of the 2018 International Congress on Mathematical Software, he edited a Special Issue of Mathematics in Computer Science. He also played a significant role in the the 2020 International Congress on Mathematical Software.

His major research effort is following up his grant in Real Geometry and Connectedness via Triangular Description, and leading the exploration of the link between Symbolic Computation and Satisfiability Checking.

He is Director of the Bath node of the Institute of Coding with special responsibility for the Observatory work package. He also led for Bath in the development of the Institute of Coding bid into the OfS AI Masters project, which is now starting to deliver. In particular, he participated in the writing of the "Get ready for a Masters in Data Science and AI" preparatory course. This is now launched: First launch (31/08/2020) and Second launch (07/12/2020)

In 2016 and 2017, and jointly with Cécile Mailler in 2018, he supervised students on the IMI Undergraduate Research Internships programme. In 2017, this was funded by the SC-square project.

He has other PhD research topics: see this topic list. One of his research students talks about the experience.

He chaired the Research Committee's Working Party on Powerful Computing: report here, and is on the High-Performance Computing Facilities Advisory Group: see service details here. The current system is called Balena. Looking at the Balena system. Whole album is here. He led for Bath in the GW4 project for an innovative ARM-based supercomputer, Phase 1 of which is pictured here. He chaired the Project Board looking at whether to replace Balena with a cloud offering, and is now on various working parties implementing that recommendation. |
