Louise Knabe, M. Engineering, is the Chief Platform Officer. In this role, she leads the Science & Technology, Implementation, and Innovation platform teams. The platform teams bring specialized skills and methods to Ariadne’s programmatic work to expedite the journey from problem statement to broadly adopted solution and to strengthen the quality and adoption of the resulting solutions. Ariadne’s solution development methodology relies on the platforms’ skills in areas such as: user-centered design, scientific trial design, data collection and storage, quantitative and qualitative analysis, implementation, and scaling, all leveraging technology where appropriate. She partners with the Chief Medical Officer and program directors to work towards Ariadne’s aspirational vision of reaching every patient, every time, everywhere.
Louise has extensive experience leading and growing teams to deliver high quality results in a range of fields, including software development, consumer goods, and health care. All of her work has been global in nature, both supporting customers in the United States and abroad and in designing global supply systems. Having joined Ariadne soon after its inception, Louise’s role has evolved over the years. She continues to enjoy bringing her non-traditional background to support Ariadne in its evolution as an organization and in its programmatic work.
Louise has a Masters of Engineering in Operations Research from Stanford University and a BA in Mathematics from Middlebury College.
