Loren Terveen is a professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota, where his research focuses on theory-based design of online communities: applying theories from the social sciences to create new interaction techniques and algorithms that elicit more positive participation from community members.  He holds 10 patents on a broad variety of topics in web search, information management, intelligent interfaces, and graphical user interfaces. He has also consulted on a number of intellectual property cases on issues such as location-based advertising, context-sensitive advertising, intelligent web search, and graphical user interfaces.

Professor Terveen is also particularly interested in geographically-based online communities: creating novel open content systems to support geographically-based communities of interest. Cyclopath is a routing and wiki-map system for bicyclists that he has helped to develop.
