Alexandra (Sasha) Killewald is Professor of Sociology at Harvard University who uses quantitative methods to study inequality in the contemporary United States with a focus on the relationships among work, family, and money. Killewald has investigated the gendered intersection of work and family as well as how wealth inequality persists across generations, including the role of intergenerational processes in the racial wealth gap. Killewald is also the author (with Yu Xie) of Is American Science in Decline? (2012).


Killewald’s research has been published in journals including American Sociological Review, Demography, Social Forces, and Journal of Marriage and Family. She is the recipient of the William Julius Wilson Early Career Award from the ASA Section on Inequality, Poverty, and Mobility.
