Cynthia Kinnan's research focuses on how households in developing countries use financial products and informal insurance networks to finance investments, save, and cope with risk. She is particularly interested in the causes of missing markets, in the interaction between insurance and credit, and in microfinance. She was selected as a participant in the 2010 Review of Economic Studies tour, where the leading PhD graduates in economics give a series of seminars in Europe.
