Professor Dag Sjøberg

Software systems form the foundation of the economic, political, social, cultural and scientific spheres of modern information society. Such systems are, for example, crucial to solving global humanitarian and environmental problems.

Since 1999, I have been a professor in software engineering, which is about developing, maintaining and managing high-quality software systems in a cost-effective and predictable way.

My research is primarily in empirical software engineering, which reflects the fact that software development is basically a human activity carried out in organizations, and consequently, to study it, we need empirical methods, ranging from controlled experiments to case studies and action research to surveys, systematic literature reviews and meta-analyses. My present interest is studies on lean and agile software development. More about my position can be found in an interview in ACM Ubiquity.

Externally Funded Projects
I have been partly the overall project leader and partly the University of Oslo project leader of 14 externally funded research projects. Two of them are running at present. More »

Research Evaluation
Research may be evaluated with respect to quality, quantity and impact. However, measuring these criteria is far from trivial. The very few outstanding scientific achievements are ...  More »
Other Interests
Among my interests are nature, climate and athletics. Functioning ecosystems are important for people's well-being, and in the long run, essential for the survival of humanity. More »
