I am Mauli Pandey! I am a pre-candidate PhD student at the University of Michigan School of Information, where I am advised by Sile o'Modhrain and Steve Oney. My research interests lie at the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction, Accessibility, and Programming. I am interested in lowering the barriers to programming and education for people with visual impairments by understanding their experiences through qualitative research methods.

Before starting my PhD, I was in the MS program (2018) at the University of Michigan School of Information. During my MS, I also worked closely with Matthew Kay, Michael Nebeling, and Sun Young Park. For my undergraduate, I attended the Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati (Design and Electronics, 2014), and was advised by Pradeep Yammiyavar.
