Prior to Notabene, Alice was previously Chief Operating Officer at uPort and Director of Business Operations at Consensys, leading the development of a decentralized identity infrastructure and user-centric data anchored on the Ethereum blockchain. Before entering the blockchain industry, she worked as an associate at The Economist, conducting high-impact, data driven analysis on public policy at the Economist Intelligence Unit, with an expert focus on gender, unemployment, and labor. While working there, she participated in the "No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project" with the Economist, the Clinton Foundation, and the Gates Foundation, a data-driven approach to gender equality that measured the gains and gaps that women and girls have achieved across more than 190 countries over the past two decades.
Before that, Alice worked as a Consultant with Bain & Co., most notably with the World Bank and the World Economic Forum on "Enabling Trade: Valuing Growth Opportunities," a case study that found reducing supply chain barriers could increase global GDP 6 times more than removing all import tariffs, potentially adding millions of jobs to the global workforce.
Alice has a BS in math and economics from MIT, an MPA from Harvard Kennedy School of Government, and an MBA from Wharton. Nawfal brings a combination of business operations, analytics, and policy experience to Notabene.
