Allan Lasser

Co-founder and CTO, Massive Science

I'm an publisher and digital designer. I truly believe the web can be a beautiful place where people use computers to do better, more often, with less.

In 2017, I co-founded of Massive Science to make scientific knowledge more accessible and actionable for everyone.

Before that, between 2014 and 2016, I was the senior designer and lead developer at MuckRock. There, I helped ordinary people make sense of public records and led the top-to-bottom redesign of the platform. As as part of this, I also hunted for the oldest computer in the federal government. I found it at the IRS.
