Alessandra González is an economic sociologist with specializations in gender, organizations, and development.

She received my Ph.D. and M.A. degrees in Sociology from Baylor University and received a B.A. in Sociology and Policy Studies from Rice University.

Her research centers on the role of culture on gender inequality, particularly measured by economic outcomes (such as labor force participation, occupational segregation, executive leadership) in organizations. She specialized in gender inequality in the Middle East, with case studies of women in executive positions in international firms, parliament, and the judiciary.

She designed her own survey instruments for unique data sets; conduct in-depth interviews and ethnographic observation; she works with original datasets compiled from public sources; and she designed field experiments in order to understand dynamic responses for proposed policy interventions.
