Personal profile

Research Interests

My primary interest has been the development of technical policy and regulatory frameworks, more specifically the establishment of the evidence base, identifying performance requirements and developing assessment methodologies. The initial focus was on promoting innovation in vehicle structural design to improve road safety improvement (an example being the development of a crash test for improved vehicle structural performance in car-to-car collisions), but has since extended to include the low carbon vehicle technologies required for climate change mitigation. I see my role in collaborative research as bringing innovation to the way that we evidence, measure and assess performance of new vehicle technologies, thus ensuring that technology is developed in a direction that provides a high benefit ratio. 

In support of the above I have provided the following overview my career within the motorsport sector, the Transport Research Laboratory and Cardiff University. 

Motorsport Engineering and Vehicle Design - Dr Davies has worked for a number of vehicle constructors and suppliers to the motorsport and specialist vehicle sector. Dr Davies was a member of the design team for vehicles entered into the Le Mans, US Indy Car and the Japanese Formula Nippon race-series. 

Vehicle Safety and Biomechanics – Dr Davies has been involved with the development of the next generation of anthropometric test devices, the development of safety standards for vehicle occupants and improvement of the protection of vulnerable road users.

Transport Policy - Of critical importance to the success of alternative vehicle technologies (such as those being developed in the University) is creating the appropriate policy environment and regulatory framework into which they can be deployed. Dr Davies has established and led on strong cross-disciplinary research, linking engineering with economics/business to undertake qualitative and quantitative analysis leading to the formulation of recommendations for policy and regulation.
