Stephanie Ludi is a professor in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of North Texas. She earned her Ph.D. in Computer Science from Arizona State University. Her research interest in accessibility involves refactoring software to maximize access by visually impaired students and programmers. In addition to her work in accessibility, Stephanie conducts research in Software Engineering education. Stephanie has led efforts to increase inclusion in K12 Computer Science and robotics curricula for students with visual impairments via curriculum redesign and tool support. In addition to curriculum support, Dr. Ludi’s work involves accessible tool support in areas such as robotics and programming with Lego Mindstorms. Other projects include refactoring block-based programming tools for accessibility and creating a more accessibility version of a Lego Mindstorms programming environment.
