Hi. I'm Mariam Guizani.

On the job market đŸ‘©â€đŸ’» 😊

I am a PhD student in the school of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science at Oregon State University. My work is at the intersection of Software Engineering (SE), Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). I am passionate about Technology and Human Factors and strive to bring the two together in perfect synergy!

I strive to increase Diversity and Inclusion in Open Source

Currently, I work along side my adviser Dr. Anita Sarma at the intersections of Software Engineering (SE), Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) and Human Computer Interaction (HCI). I focus on (1) building an empirical understanding of the state of Diversity and Inclusion in OSS and the challenges that this socio-technical ecosystem faces in attracting and retaining contributors and (2) designing interventions to improve the state of Diversity and Inclusion in OSS and increase contributors’ attraction and retention.


In parallel with my research, I have worked alongside the Director of IT Organizational Development at Oregon State University (OSU) to advance OSU IT’s commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), the Apache Software Foundation Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Team and interned at Microsoft Research.


In 2018, I completed my Master of Science in Computer Science at Oregon State University advised by Dr. Eugene Zhang

I am a Fulbright Alumna and ex Reseach Intern (summer 2021) at Microsoft Research, Redmond Washington.
