Professor, Computer Science and Engineering
Usability, software engineering
Jensen’s research lies at the intersection between usability and software engineering, with an emphasis on studying how Open Source communities operate and organize, and the tools and processes needed to make them more efficient. His recent work uses automated testing techniques to help developers improve the reliability of large and complex open source software.
Before joining UC San Diego in 2020, Jensen served as Associate Dean of Undergraduate Programs in the College of Engineering at Oregon State University (OSU). He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Georgia Institute of Technology and was a tenured member of the faculty of the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at OSU.
