Speaker - Mariam Guizani
Mariam Guizani is a Doctoral Candidate in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Oregon State University and an upcoming Assistant Professor at Queen's University. Her research centers around improving the state of Diversity and Inclusion in complex socio-technical ecosystems by empowering communities to dismantle cognitive and social barriers that introduce inequities. More specifically, she focuses on designing processes and tools to help Open-Source Software (OSS) communities make their projects more inclusive and attract and retain contributors. During her time at Oregon State University, Mariam has collaborated with the Apache Software Foundation (ASF). She has interned at Microsoft Research where she designed a maintainer dashboard that is now built into two GitHub products and is now working closely with ASF and Google on implementing interventions for sustainable communities.
