A native of Colombia, Greta Friedemann-Sánchez is an assistant professor of international development in the global policy area. She is an economic and medical anthropologist interested in women's empowerment and gender equity. Her research aims to understand how and why gender equity or inequity is generated inside of homes through the interlacing of family bargaining dynamics, policy, and cultural norms. Dr. Friedemann-Sánchez's research unravels the complex web of intrahousehold relationships through four strands of scholarship: paid labor, property ownership, domestic violence, and unpaid caregiving labor.

National policies and programming can exacerbate intrahousehold gender inequality or strengthen women's intrahousehold bargaining positions. Gathering evidence on the association and relative importance of assets, domestic violence and caregiving to intrahousehold processes is needed, but few surveys collect employment, asset, health, violence, and caregiving data for the same individual. Dr. Friedemann-Sánchez is currently the Principal Investigator of the project "Colombia Individual Survey on Assets, Care, and Violence" (LIVES) which aims to fill these gaps.

Dr. Friedemann-Sánchez holds a Ph.D. in economic anthropology and a Master of Public Affairs from the University of Minnesota, and a Licenciatura in Anthropology from the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia. She completed postdoctoral training in health services research at the Minneapolis VA Medical Center's Center for Chronic Disease Outcomes Research. Prior to joining the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, Dr. Friedemann-Sánchez was a core health research scientist at the Center for Chronic Disease Outcomes Research at the Minneapolis VA Medical Center.
