Hector Gonzalez

Graduate Student Research Assistant


I'm a master's in development practice student at UC Berkeley Goldman School of Public Policy. I bring over nine years of experience in business development and management. I have helped grow private businesses, startups, including an investment fund, providing strategic planning and project management.

I am interested in acquiring tools that can help me assess sustainability and impact of business and public policy. I want to develop better methodologies to account for environmental and social impact of production of goods and energy. I aim to contribute to the green revolution at the intersection of academia, the private sector, and public policy, leveraging my expertise in business and development.
As a research assistant at Berkeley Lab, I work in the Econ Sub Group, Energy/Environmental Policy in the Energy Technologies Area - where I am able to apply my knowledge and skills in energy policy, economics, and finance to support research projects that address sustainability and impact challenges.

I have multiple certifications in research ethics and data validation, and I speak four languages, which enable me to communicate and collaborate effectively with diverse stakeholders and partners.
