Ana Luiza Barbosa

Researcher at the Instituto de Pesquisa Econômica Aplicada (IPEA) since 1998, Ana Luiza Neves de Holanda Barbosa is currently working on the empirical evidence for differences in the negative impact of motherhood across the earnings distribution and in time-use allocation by gender and by the family in Brazil. Her main research interests are in the area of Labor Economics, Gender Economics and Family Economics. 

As a Professor of Economics at IBMEC-RJ University, she teaches undergraduate courses in Microeconomics and Consumer Theory. Barbosa received a Ph.D degree in Economics from the FGV/EPGE – the Brazilian Getúlio Vargas Foundation School of Economics from 2012 (Rio de Janeiro). 

Since then, she has studied issues such as the validity of the unitary model for singles based on a Brazilian Consumer Demand System and the impact of the Brazilian conditional cash transfer program (Bolsa Família) in the allocation of labor inputs in formal and informal activities. Regarding gender and family economics, her work has focused on the participation of the Brazilian female labor force; the domestic workers labor market; and on the trends in the allocation of time by gender in Brazil.
