North Carolina State University
Maryam Riahi joined NC State University as a Computer Science Ph.D. student in 2018. It was in her first semester that she found her deep interest in Human-Computer Interaction. She joined the Visual Experience lab and started her research in User Experience and Data Visualization. Maryam Believes combining social science and computer technical knowledge is one of the great breakpoints in understanding users and sharing empathy with them. In her Ph.D. research, she strives for better communication methods either in gaming or health dashboards by conducting numerous quantitative and qualitative methods in studying user’s behaviors. Maryam is looking forward to applying her research experience in the UX industry after graduation.
