Alexis Gauba

I'm Alexis, an undergraduate at UC Berkeley pursuing a degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. 

I've always sought to further emerging fields, building up the first high school Business and Entrepreneurship department at The Harker School, as Co-Founder and Executive Director at CareerConnect and as CEO of one of the most successful DECA chapters in the nation. 

I've spent two summers at The Hive, LLC working on Data Science and Data Engineering projects and spent a summer researching MediCal with Professor Mark Duggan at SIEPR (Stanford's Institute for Economic Policy Research).

Currently, I'm focused on blockchain technology, specifically protocol level cryptoeconomic mechanisms, as a Developer and Researcher at Blockchain at Berkeley. I am also actively working to bridge barriers to entry in this space through intiatives like SHE256. See below for more of my work in this space. 

In my spare time I'm an avid traveler, food enthusiast, bookworm, and golfer.
