James Welch gained a BA in Computation from Oxford University in 2004, and stayed in Oxford to do a DPhil in Software Engineering. He is currently working on the MRC Data Support Service in conjunction with OeRC and Software Engineering.

James’ current interests are in the development of enterprise software, “model-driven” technologies, the Unified Modelling Language, model transformations and metamodelling. He is also interested in formal methods, refinement and in particular the languages of Z and B. These interests are combined in a current project on the Booster language and Toolkit, and put into practice on a number of development projects.
