Jennifer Davis

Principal Applied Mathematician

Jennifer (Jen) Davis is a Principal Applied Mathematician in the Advanced Technology Center at Rockwell Collins. Dr. Davis has served as the Rockwell Collins Principal Investigator for multiple U.S. DoD programs in the area of formal methods. She has experience applying the SpeAR tool to document and analyze the formal requirements for a new architecture. She also has experience using AGREE to formalize an instantiation of the simplex architecture together with its requirements.

Dr. Davis has experience with state of the art theorem proving tools. She jointly developed a translator from LLVM to ACL2 to enable verification of system properties. She also used PVS to complete correctness proofs for the DO-333 theorem proving case study. In addition to Dr. Davis’ formal methods skills, she has experience with cryptography, error-correcting codes, image processing, model-based engineering, and cybersecurity. She earned her Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln in 2007.
