James H. (Jamie) Andrews

Associate Professor
Department of Computer Science
University of Western Ontario
London, Ontario, Canada


The focuses of my research are software engineering and programming languages. Some recurrent themes in my research are testing and verification, the use of precisely defined notations, and formal logic. These themes appear in various forms in the specific research projects I am undertaking: My research group has also started work on two areas of research that have great future potential: DBLP seems to have consolidated my publications now. There used to be four separate entries containing my papers -- now there's only one.

Some recent publications are listed here.

Some software that I have written or been involved with is available here, including the Log File Analysis Language (LFAL) compiler, lfalc.

About me

I am Canadian and lived for a total of 20 years in Vancouver, BC, two years in Ottawa working for Bell-Northern Research (later swallowed up by Northern Telecom), and 3.5 years doing my PhD at the Department of Computer Science, University of Edinburgh, Scotland. After getting my PhD in 1991, I worked for several years as a researcher and teacher in the Computer Science departments at Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia. I took up my present position in July 1997.

"Jamie" is a Scottish nickname for "James" -- my family is Scottish-Canadian. In most situations I prefer to be called Jamie, which is what my family and friends call me. However, my "official" name is James Harold Andrews, so I use "James H. Andrews" on most of my publications.

I am a member of the IEEE and the ACM.
