Prof. Jens H. Weber

Department of Computer Science
University of Victoria


I conduct research at the intersection of Software Engineering and Health Informatics. I am specifically interested in quality assurance, safety, security, maintenance and certification of software systems.


I teach courses on Security Engineering, Software Architecture and Design, Softare Quality Assurance, Software Maintenance, and Information Systems. I also teach a range of advanced topics courses.


I provide professional services to the academic and industrial community. I am an Associate Editor of the Journal for Health Informatics Research. I am licensed as a Professional Engineer in British Columbia.

Interdisciplinary Research Lab


I co-direct LEAD Lab, an interdisciplinary research laboratory at the intersection of software engineering and health informatics. LEAD lab is a joint venture of the University of Victoria (Computer Science) and the University of British Columbia (Medicine)


Research Topics

My research revolves around these main topics focused on software-intensive systems – and often applied to healthcare applications.

Do you have a problem that we can help with?

We have a long track record of successful partnerships and collaborations with industrial (public and private) and academic organizations. Some of our projects are purely in software engineering, while others also have a healthcare aspect. Many collaborative projects have been funded, in part, by provincial and federal funding partners.
