Alice Huguet is a policy researcher focused on K-12 education at the RAND Corporation. She studies educational policies that influence the academic and life opportunities of students attending urban schools. She employs qualitative methods to better understand complex environmental, institutional, and organizational factors that intersect with the design and implementation of such policies.

Huguet's research explores a variety of topics, including evidence-based decisionmaking; school leadership; inter-organizational relationships; social and emotional learning; alternative teacher preparation programs; data- and instructional-coaching; multiple-measure teacher evaluation policies; and school site co-location.

Prior to joining RAND, Huguet was a postdoctoral research fellow at the School of Education and Social Policy at Northwestern University. She earned her Ph.D. in urban education policy from the University of Southern California in 2015. Her motivation to study education stems from five years teaching reading and history in Los Angeles middle schools.
