Originally from Santa Fe, Alix Generous is a 20-year old molecular biology and neuroscience major at the College of Charleston and a neuroscience researcher for the Medical University of South Carolina. At 19, she won a research competition for her work in quorum sensing and coral reefs, which she presented to 14,000 UN delegates in the fall of 2012. She's lived her life with Asperger's Syndrome, and she credits her unique mind with her success in dealing with complex issues.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
