Natalya Alonso

  • Assistant Professor


Natalya Alonso is an Assistant Professor in Organizational Behaviour and Human Resources at the Haskayne School of Business. Her research focuses on how employees attempt to shape the way their social groups and identities are perceived at work. By considering the organizational contexts and individual behaviors that inform these evaluations, Natalya's research provides a dynamic perspective on workplace (dis)advantage. Recently, she has been particularly interested in exploring these questions in traditionally male-dominated industries such as policing, construction, and high technology. Her doctoral studies were partly funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

Natalya joined the Haskayne School of Business in 2021. She earned her BComm from Queen's University and her PhD from the University of British Columbia.
