Lorie Loeb

Lorie Loeb works at the intersection of design, technology and society. Her work focuses on presenting information in ways that create an emotional connection to data in order to increase impact and motivate people to change behavior. Lorie is a Professor in the Computer Science Department at Dartmouth College, Director of the Digital Arts Programs, Co-Founder/Faculty Director of the Dartmouth’s Digital Applied Learning and Innovation Lab (DALI), and Deputy Director for Design at the Center for Technology and Behavioral Health. The DALI Lab elevates learning through the transformative process of designing and building tools from concept through impact. Small teams of students solve big problems for partners from around the world. We approach our work with a spirit of creativity, whimsy and innovation that is inspired by Salvador Dali’s ability to transform the ordinary in to the extraordinary.
