Daniel Newman is the Director of Product Design at NPR. In this role, he leads an experienced team of product designers to create digital news and storytelling experiences that meet listeners both in the places they are now and the places they will be in the future—websites, mobile apps, voice-driven devices, connected cars, wearables, and other emerging platforms. Prior to joining NPR, Dan managed the Web & Mobile User Experience team at Wolfram (WolframAlpha.com) where he played an integral role in shaping the role of user experience within the company. He holds degrees in sociology and advertising from the University of Illinois.
2019 will mark Dan’s third time as a volunteer for this event (and sixth time attending overall)—previously, he served as Attendee Experience Director for the 2015 IA Summit in Minneapolis and was Co-Chair of the 2016 IA Summit in Atlanta.
