Lucas Artusi is a systems designer at the Design Institute for Health — a partnership between Dell Medical School and the College of Fine Arts at The University of Texas at Austin. He focuses on understanding complex ecosystems in order to design cohesive systems of products, services and experiences that transcend organizational boundaries.

He leads curriculum development for the third-year distinction in health care design and innovation at Dell Med, a cutting-edge program teaching the principles of human-centered design to future physicians.

Prior to working at the Design Institute, Artusi worked at international design firm IDEO as a product designer where he focused primarily on health care products and services.

When he’s off the clock, Artusi pursues his other passions: hiking, scuba diving, travel, photography, Tex-Mex and sci-fi movies. He is a registered emergency medical technician and wilderness search and rescue volunteer.

Artusi holds a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering from The University of Texas at Austin and a master’s degree in management science and engineering from Stanford University. He regularly returns to the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford to coach and mentor new designers.
