My name is Zixuan (Steve) Feng. I am pursing Ph.D., advised by Anita Sarma in the Department of Electrical Engineering Computer Science and Statistics at Oregon State University (OSU). I work at the intersection of Software Engineering (SE), Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). I am particularly interested in developing an empirical understanding of the collaboration in OSS and the challenges that this socio-technical ecosystem faces in attracting and retaining contributors and designing interventions to improve the state of Diversity and Inclusion in OSS and increase contributor recruitment and retention.
