Rebecca Gu
Senior Project Manager, Electron


Rebecca Gu is a senior project manager at Electron, where she’s building blockchain-based digital infrastructure for the energy industry. Previously, Rebecca was an economist at Baringa Partners, where she wrote a discussion paper on the topic of algorithmic pricing. On the human side, she’s brought forward economic evidence in the first UK High Court case to go to trial for damages against a cartelist. On the machine side, her interest lies in how machine learning and AI are changing what we might consider cartels. Machine learning is also broadly changing the way we shop, the way firms price, and how governments and industry should work together to face these challenges.
