Dr Kristina Czura is an Assistant Professor at the University of Munich. She obtained her PhD in Economics from the Goethe University Frankfurt in 2012 defending the Thesis "Empirical essays on microfinance in South Asia: Financial product design, borrower welfare, and risk coping".

Her research focuses on development economics in general, and in particular, on the nexus of financial product design in microfinance, vulnerability and risk coping, and borrower and client welfare. She is especially interested in how households use microfinancial products to cope with adverse income shocks and how such products should be designed to meet microfinance clients' needs.
